well i think i can answer your question. Chael is listed on the roster because he has fought in the UFC 3 times in the past. he was featured in UFC 55, UFN 14 and UFC 60. he went 1-2 losing to Horn and Babalu and defeating Trever Prangley.
that doesnt really answer the question, though... i'm sure its just a mistake on the UFC's part, leaving sonnen on their site because your explanation would also have jens' name still on the roster.
i do think chael is finally ready for the ufc now, though.. depending who he gets put against. i mean, yeah.. he's only 2-1 in the WEC and 1-2 in the UFC, but look who he's lost to. he was one of babalus victims in a 10 fight winning streak preceeded and followed by fights with liddell, and he lost to jeremy horn who was fighting for liddells belt less than a year prior. those were at 205, obviously, and his sole loss in the WEC was VERY controversial (and i'd argue he would of won, had it not been called a verbal submission) to the #2 185lber in the world.
