Chael Sonnen might not carry himself in the most idealistic ways, but even his most vocal detractors have to admire his self-confidence and work ethic. Though he does have his weaknesses inside the cage, namely his infamous submission defense that has plagued him in eight of his 11 career losses, Sonnen has a drive unlike any other middleweight in the world.

In addition to showing improved submission defense, Sonnen will undoubtedly be looking to dictate the pace of the fight once again in his rematch with Silva at UFC 148 on Saturday.
