Dana White Details Security Rrequired for Chael Sonnen While in Brazil

UFC President, Dana White reveals the security measurements in place surrounding middleweight trash-talker, Chael Sonnen during a recent trip to Brazil for a specially arranged press conference.

White, speaking via the Orange County Register, said:

“We had proper security with us. We had like seven guys with us. These are guys that mapped out the whole route. We literally landed at the airport in Rio, a shuttle took us through customs, jumped on helicopters, and the helicopters took us right to the hotel. I came through the front door. We put (Sonnen) through a side door. We had him in a holding room. We went down to the press conference and he had a scrum. The reporters were getting really aggressive with him at the scrum. Somebody got him with a shock pen and all kinds of stuff like that. He went out the side door. I went out the front door. Helicopters took us back. We got on a plane and got him out of there. I wanted to make sure we got in and out and got him safe.”

“I’m still getting texts, ‘Did you and Sonnen get out of Brazil alive last night? I haven’t heard from you. Give me an update.’ I made (Sonnen) ride in a different car than me.”
