Chael Sonnen Is Something Of A Human-Crystal-Ball ... Only In Reverse

Shortly before UFC 148 (where Anderson Silva successfully defended his Middleweight crown by once again finishing Chael Sonnen), Sonnen delivered the following gem: “I’m gonna walk out there, and as soon as I get the chance, I’m gonna wait for him to throw a kick like he always does, I’m gonna put my forehead in his chest, run him into that cage, put him on his prissy little ass and run this (raises fist) into his head for 25 minutes until he gives up. That’s my prediction.”

Well, it's a new day, and a fresh attempt for Sonnen to stay relevant. Sonnen's take on the upcoming UFC 151 headliner between Dan Henderson and Jon Jones: “Jones is a talented kid, but he’s taking on a man, and I’d bet on the man any day of the week.”

What have we learned? Bet the farm on Jones finishing Henderson before the end of the second round.
