Matt Lindland, Chael Sonnen's coach of 15 years, was one of dozens of people trying to reach the UFC middleweight contender this past Tuesday, and like most of them, he was unsuccessful.

When news broke that Sonnen had been suspended by the UFC not long after his guilty plea to federal charges of money laundering, he rang Sonnen's cell phone and got voicemail.

"He honestly did not have the energy to push 'dial,'" Lindland on Thursday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I've been there before. You feel like, 'Just let me sit here for a while and figure out what my next move is going to be.'"

Sonnen eventually answered, though, and on Wednesday, the two met and talked about that next move.

Not so sure about that. I think he'd just turtle up and give up his back.

It's all about top control in prison no matter how you slice it. I've heard they also like to stand and bang...
