  5. Sonnen's attempt at flattery falls short

    Franklin McNeil

    That Chael Sonnen guy: He isn't one of the best light heavyweights in UFC. But Sonnen has the gift of gab. He's second to none in that category. His uncanny ability to come up with catchy phrases, primarily derogatory comments targeted at champions, ...
