Chael Sonnen believes he should be ranked at light heavyweight, despite not competing there since 2006. But this brings up a larger question - how are other fighters going to feel about being unranked when they have a fight booked in a new division?

He should be unranked until he fights there. I think it's as simple as that. He fought there in 2006 but that's a long time ago and he also wasn't successful then.

This is like Belfort thinking he should be getting.....another title shot at Jon Jones.

Just crazy thinking.

Just Chael being Chael. Should we really be surprised? He'd probably claim he should be ranked top 10 at HW, too.

God damn right he should be ranked! He should be the top of the list and he will be once he beats Jones! A great man once said “I am a brilliant man and it's something that has plagued me for a long time.”, and that great man was Chael P. Sonnen. The future LHW champion of the world!

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
