Chael Sonnen is less than 48 hours away from his highly anticipated rematch with Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight championship. 

Sonnen squares off with Silva on Saturday night in the main event of UFC 148.

Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter caught up with Sonnen after Thursday's open workouts to discuss his long road back to title contention, whether or not he thought he'd ever get another chance, the promise he made to his dad that he'd one day be a world champion and much more.
