Before he followed Anderson Silva's lead and disappeared from a media call for UFC 148, Chael Sonnen was in full promotion mode.

He got shown up by the man he had claimed to carry for two years in the hype game, but before Silva (31-4 MMA, 14-0 UFC) uncharacteristically threatened him (and then was disconnected from the call), Sonnen (27-11-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) made a claim that was characteristically as bold as it was doubtful.

"This is the biggest sporting event of the summer, and for a reason," Sonnen said. "I heard somebody else ... say, 'Well, what about the (2012) Olympic games?' I'm scratching my head. I love the Olympic games, but let's be fair – just because somebody has got the Olympics on in the background while their family is eating dinner isn't exactly the same.

I think we all thought you'd have a huge penis for the amount of shit you talk.

There is a real argument this might be the biggest fight in UFC history.

Dana White expects the pay-per-view to come close to UFC 100 numbers, and that card was bursting with name value and was marketed as more than just the main event.

So I agree with Chael Sonnen. (And everybody else that realized this before today.)
