UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen

What has Matt Serra been doing since he lost to Chris Lytle all the way back at UFC 119? From the looks of it, the former welterweight champ appears to have been inhaling tons of pizza and pasta.

The likable jiu jitsu expert was called upon to check in on multiple UFC 148 contestants as they prepare for battle. Serra’s first stop took him to the mean streets of West Linn, Oregon to chat with middleweight top contender Chael Sonnen (Pictured) at Team Quest.

Uncle Chael is 12 days out from rematching champion Anderson Silva in arguably the most anticipated rematch in mixed martial arts history.

Of course, what would a trip to the Pacific Northwest be without a journey to Sonnen’s Mean Street Pizza? “The Terror” was a fan. Shocker…

UFC 148 takes place July 7th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
