Reports Claim Sonnen Had Emergency Colon Surgery A Day Before Rashad Evans Figh

Sources are reporting that during an interview with Sonnen set to air tonight on TSN’s “Off the record” it said that Sonnen underwent colon surgery the day before his fight with Rashad Evans at UFC 167 in November.

Off the record host Michael Landsberg questioned Sonnen about the surgery, saying he got the information from an unnamed source to which Sonnen responded:

“It’s a little bit of a surprise that you had that information. When I sign a contract to fight, I’m agreeing to fight a guy on a certain day at a certain time and in a certain venue. It’s my job to feel good when I go out and do it and if I don’t that may play a hand in the fight.”
