So, Chael Sonnen has a UFC Belt Now
The last championship UFC bout Chael Sonnen was in, he was stunningly submitted in the 5th round by Anderson Silva. Somehow though, after talking all year about himself being "THE Middleweight champion," he finally has a belt. Did he challenge and defeat Anderson Silva in the kitchen of a McDonalds without anyone else knowing this week?
I do not think Dana White would approve a UFC fighter, who is not a champion, to hold a UFC title belt on national television. I wonder if he will ask Bruce Buffer to announce him as the UFC Middleweight Champion on Saturday when he faces Michael Bisping at UFC on FOX 2. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
