For the better part of two years, Chael Sonnen went out of his way to denigrate Anderson Silva. In the process of twice challenging the UFC middleweight champion and twice coming up short, Sonnen taunted Silva, his homeland of Brazil, made a fake middleweight title belt he carried around, and so on.

Heading into his UFC 159 main event on Saturday night in which he faces Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title, Sonnen is still taking shots at his conqueror.

On Monday's media teleconference promoting the event, Sonnen went out of his way to say he considered Jones a better fighter than Silva, the man most consider the world's best pound-for-pound fighter...

Well I guess there's no need for me to drop 55 bucks to watch you get absolutely outclassed again then is there?

Sounds like Chael has already conceded defeat.

Bjj1605 says nothing Chael Sonnen says can be taken at face value.

He's always got an agenda.
