Chael Sonnen Movie Ranking: / 5
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC’s Middleweight and Light Heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen was one of the many who wanted to see Brock Lesnar make his return to the promotion. And while the former UFC Heavyweight champion renewed his contract with the World Wrestling Entertainment or WWE, the American Gangster is not closing the door on his return to the cage just now.
However, he said he understands what Lesnar meant when he said that his legacy inside the Octagon was over.
Sonnen, who now works as an analyst for the UFC said that he thought that it was pretty obvious, adding that he felt that Lesnar played it the best way he could have done to make it believe that he was indeed returning to fight.
Lesnar, who had a 5-3 Mixed Martial Arts and 4-2 UFC record, was on the verge of becoming a free agent with his contract nearing its end. However, just before WWE’s flagship event Wrestle Mania kicked off, Lesnar announced that he had signed a new deal, effectively ending all speculation linking him with a return to the UFC.
And despite the new contract, Chael Sonnen doesn’t think that there is no possibility of Lesnar ever making a comeback in the future. According to the American, UFC president Dana White enjoys a strong relationship with WWE boss Vince McMahon and just because he signed the contract, doesn’t mean he will never come to the UFC.
Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC shocked the entire Mixed Martial Arts world in the last couple of months when he said that he doesn’t believe former UFC Welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre will ever return to the Octagon. The Canadian, however, hasn’t ruled out a return to the cage altogether.
He recently sat down for an interview with a local news outlet in Quebec, his native, where he has been spending a lot of time with his family and said that Dana White can be sure that he is not coming back but that is entirely his own opinion. He mentioned that he is training regularly in order to keep his body in shape, adding that he has got bruise marks all over his body because his body gets battered easily and that is a sign that he has been training a lot.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Middleweight and Light Heavyweight Championship contender Chael Sonnen might have hung up his fighting gloves but that doesn’t mean he will keep quiet whenever there is any hot topic in the discussion.
During a recent appearance as an analyst for ESPN MMA, the Oregon native discussed the respective careers of Welterweight and Middleweight legends Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva. In the aftermath of the failed dope test of the Brazilian, his reputation as the greatest Mixed Martial Artist of all time has been put into doubt.
Sonnen himself faced Anderson twice inside the cage for the UFC Middleweight Championship and despite losing comprehensively on both occasions; he somehow managed to become his greatest adversary. Chael Sonnen believes that the pound for pound category has changed a lot in the last few years and he feels that there is no argument at all about who the best is.
