Chael Sonnen backs up his bluster with dominating performance over Anderson Silva at UFC 117...

UFC's one man promo machine, Chael Sonnen carried out what he said he was going to do by completely manhandling Middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 117. Despite a dominating 23 minute performance in the first 4.5 Rounds, Sonnen was skillfully submitted by Silva in the closing 2 minutes of the Fight.

True to Sonnen's form, he was humble in defeat but did not shy away from the audacious swagger that delighted crowds in the lead up to fight.

Its evident in the clips that Sonnen has the Gift of the Gab. An asset that has already served him in elevating his status in the UFC and will help in any future political campaigns if he ever chooses to resume his political endeavours. But in Politics as in Fighting, there is a difference between talking the talk and walking the walk and even when one manages both they still may come up short.
