Chael Sonnen (pictured) certainly knows how to talk the talk, but on Saturday night he walked the walk – and then, of course, he talked the talk again.
To the surprise of nobody, Sonnen immediately charged Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and planted him on his back within 10 seconds. After some back-and-forth action, Sonnen slapped on a guillotine choke and pulled guard to secure the...

Chael Sonnen's Future
Some speculated he was in over his head fighting former world champions in a new weight class, but Sonnen didn't get the memo.
In the finest performance of his career, Sonnen bulldozed former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, taking him down and battering him with punches before ultimately forcing him to submit via first...
Dana White instigated the media rankings, as the sport needed a standardization of said ranks, and now he completely disagrees with them before they can even be adjusted after Chael’s impressive win last night. Oh, Dana.
Either way, this is what he said last night at the post-fight scrum.
“Plus the whole ‘He’s all talk‘ thing is just so crazy, I mean people write stories...
