Well, this is a new one. Chael Sonnen will be chowing down in a competitive eating contest less than a month before he takes on Tito Ortiz at Bellator 170. Sonnen is set to compete at Bear's BBQ in Hartford, CT on December 29th and will be recording his latest episode of his podcast while he's there.

According to reddit user 'bigwillthechamp123' (who is also competing on the undercard), Chael will be taking a 10-minute challenge with teammate Brian Nichols against competitive eating champ Jamie McDonald. The loser must donate to Hire Heroes, a charity which helps veterans transition into civilian life.

Chael and his teammate must try to eat more than McDonald in 10 minutes.

I mean, this can't be a good idea right? I know it's for charity, but Chael will be in a HUGE fight just a few weeks later.

Here are the official rules of the all-important competition.
