This year’s Fighter’s Only World Mixed Martial Arts Awards just got a lot more interesting.

The host for this year’s show will be none other than the always controversial, often outspoken UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen.

Several sources close to the event confirmed Sonnen’s participation in the show to MMAWeekly.com on Friday.

Sonnen, who is fresh off of his win over Brian Stann at UFC 136, may ask to change the title of the show to ‘Chael Sonnen’s World MMA Awards’, but that hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.

The Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards takes place on Nov 30 at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Sonnen will lead the festivities, which will feature several major categories, in the fourth annual event taking place this year.
