Chael Sonnen returns to action on Saturday as a light heavyweight, but one of his best performances came in 2010 as a middleweight.

Sonnen (27-13-1 MMA, 6-6 UFC), who meets Mauricio Rua (21-7 MMA, 5-5 UFC) in Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 26 main event on FOX Sports 1, is a two-time UFC title challenger. He got his first shot at the belt in 2010, thanks to his performance against Marquardt earlier in the year at UFC 109.

Check out the full fight, which earned both competitors “Fight of the Night” bonuses, above.
