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.

"He's not coming off the (Anderson) Silva fight and just talking his way into a 205-pound world title shot." view original article >>
