It is interesting that the UFC has named Chael Sonnen as the top contender against the light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, yet they couldn’t include the contender in the top 10 of the division rankings. In fact you will not find Sonnen anywhere on the list.

Yes, Chael was once a light heavyweight champ in Gladiator Challenge, but that was almost 10 years ago now. Regardless, this doesn’t sit well with the middleweight import.


“LHW – you might as well write the LHW rankings backwards because that’s about as much sense as it makes without me on top of them.”
