Chael SonnenPound-for-pound rankings are subjective, but there’s a uniform consistency among pound-for-pound rankings that UFC middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva is at the top of the list.

Unless you ask Chael P. Sonnen.

Sonnen (27-12-1) has faced Silva twice and lost both times.  He takes on UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in the UFC 159 main event on April 27 and believes Jones is much better than Silva.

“Look, here’s the reality with Anderson.  I stomped that guy, and you can pick up his little arm as many times as you want and call him the winner, but the fact is I whipped his ass for 30 minutes.  He got to jump on me for less than 30 seconds.  He never knocked me down.  I fell down.  They say Anderson’s the best pound-for-pound.  He’s not the best round-for-round,” said Sonnen during a media conference call on Monday.

“I have three 10-8 rounds my entire career.  I’ve fought 49 men.  Three rounds of my whole life are 10-8.  That’s gymnastics’ equivalent to a perfect 10.  It doesn’t happen in this sport. I doubt anyone on this call even has a 10-8 round (Jon Jones, Michael Bisping, and Alan Belcher were also on the call).  I have three of them.  They’re all against Anderson Silva. So, if you think Jon and Anderson are even close, I will run through Jon because I ran through Anderson,” said Sonnen.

“I don’t think they’re close.  I think Jon is considerably better than Anderson.”

If the stars align with Silva winning his next fight and Jones winning his next two, a superfight between Jones and Silva could happen. Sonnen doesn’t subscribe to the thinking that Silva can beat Jones.

“Sometimes I hear that I don’t deserve this fight, or that I’m not the right guy, but then I hear that Anderson can beat him.  You’ve got to be kidding me.  I stomped Anderson Silva, twice.”
