Despite his best efforts to stir up enough interest in a title fight to
skip right through the light-heavyweight ranks, Chael Sonnen will not be
awarded a title shot with a win over Forrest Griffin.
UFC President Dana White today made that declaration during an
appearance on the "Dave and Mahoney" morning show on Las Vegas' KXTE
"He's a long way away," White said. "He's not coming off the (Anderson)
Silva fight and just talking his way into a 205-pound world title shot."
