Säkerheten var hög då UFC-fightern Chael Sonnen tog sig till Rio de Janeiro, Brasilien för att dela på den presskonferens som hölls i tisdags den 24 april. En presskonferens som även Anderson Silva och UFCs president Dana White deltog på. Sonnen har efter sin många uttalanden retat upp den brasilianska befolkningen och det visade sig också efter presskonferensen, Sonnen attackerades bland annat med en shock penna. Hör vad Dana White har att säga i en intervju med OCregister om insidenten efter brytet.
“We had proper security with us” säger White “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 helicopters took us right to hotel. I came in through front door we put him (Sonnen) through a side door. We had him in a holding room. We went down to 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 him in and out safe”
“I am still getting texts, ’Did you and Sonnen get out of Brazil alive last night ? I have not heard from you. Give me an update’ I made him (Sonnen) ride in a different car than me”Här nedan har ni en gammal intervju med Chael Sonnen om bland annat Anderson Silva och Brasilien.
