Chael Sonnen failed to dethrone Jon Jones at UFC 159, but that doesn't mean the outspoken veteran is finished in the 205-pound division.
Almost immediately after his loss to Jones, Sonnen was already beginning to sell a rivalry fight with Wanderlei Silva. During an episode of UFC Tonight on Fuel TV, Sonnen said, "I'm not going anywhere until me and Wanderlei straighten this thing out once and for all."
While no fight has been booked, it would seem the bout between Sonnen and Silva is an inevitability and could take place at the UFC's debut show on Fox Sports 1.
With a win over Silva, it's possible the UFC could look to push Sonnen back into fights with top 205-pound contenders. Let's take a look at how Sonnen might match up against those top-10 UFC light heavyweights.
