In August of 2010, Chael Sonnen came within less than two minutes of dethroning one of the greatest fighters of all-time, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. On July 7th, at UFC 148, the self-proclaimed “Gangster from West Linn” attempts to finish what he started against Silva, the pound-for-pound king, in the most eagerly anticipated rematch in UFC history. Plus, the biggest card of 2012 is stacked with even more intriguing action, as bantamweight superstar Urijah Faber faces Brazilian powerhouse Renan Barao for the interim 135-pound title and Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin look to settle the score in the final bout of their trilogy.
