He we go again…. Chael Sonnen has talked his way into another fight. This time against Shogun, at UFC on FOX Sports 1. Chael has lost his 3 (title fights) of his last 5 fights, and now he’s been gifted the main event at UFC on FOX Sports 1. Looks like marketing and PPV buys are becoming the focus of the MMA, and Chael Sonnen is proving it. Hopefully Shogun will force Chael to make it more than drawn out ‘lay and pray’ bout.
Chaels last 5 fight:
|LOSS||Jon Jones*||UFC 159||TKO|
|LOSS||Anderson Silva*||UFC 148||TKO|
|WIN||Brian Stann||UFC 136||Submission|
|LOSS||Anderson Silva*||UFC 117||Submission|
