Sonnen’s Harrison view
“There just isn’t any story here,” Sonnen said. “However many times Kayla has fought, she has never made a dollar for the promoter, and that’s a tough concept. I know that bothers Kayla on a personal note when people say that, but it’s not meant as an insult. It’s just meant to attempt to splash some cold water and bring somebody a little bit closer to reality.”
