Chael Sonnen is a guy that people have heard but everyone seems to forget exactly what he looks like. Chael Sonnen looks like a default human and every MMA fighter is just a version of Chael Sonnen but with extra things added. Chael Sonnen looks like a guy that could give you tips on on pruning a bonsai tree. Chael Sonnen looks like a guy that could give you advice if you ever find yourself lost in Portland, Oregon. Actually, Chael Sonnen looks like a guy that has beat cut-off flannel extraordinaire, Paulo Filho. Back in 2008, Sonnen handed Paulo Filho his first (and only) lost at WEC 36 via unanimous decision. This defeat left Filho falling down a spiral of depression that consisted of getting strange tattoos and hand-making multiple cut-off flannels.
Today it’s been reported that Chael Sonnen has been slated to bang against Nate Marquardt at UFC 110 along with Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Wanderlei Silva, Cro Cop vs. Ben Rothwell and Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski. It’s hard to ignore the 900lb elephant sitting on in the room (the one that just broke your Ikea coffee table). This fight is really supposed to Dan Henderson vs. Nate Marquardt and the winner had dibs on a shot with Anderson Silva. Things got funky, Dan Henderson wanted more money and he’s currently entertaining offers from Strikeforce and DREAM. Not sure if Chael Sonnen vs. Nate Marquardt will have the same spoils as its previous incarnation but we do know that by the end of UFC 110, someone will have a very nice KO of the night bonus.
