Dana White sends Chael Sonnen to 'the end of the line' after UFC 148 loss

"[Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen] is the biggest everything in UFC history. It's the biggest rivalry, the biggest fight. We broke every record as far as the business goes that we've ever had this weekend…. This one was pretty decisive. He's beat him twice. It's not like this is the rubber match. He beat him twice. He beat him. Chael is in a position that most guys are -- when you go on a run at the title, and you lost two times, back at the end of the line."

I'd honestly like to see a third fight because nobody else besides Rashad or Bisping (stretch) interests me, but I get why they wouldn't do that. I doubt it broke all these business records; I have a hard time believing it will top Lesnar/Carwin, Lesnar/Couture, or Lesnar/Cain, let alone UFC 100.

The end of the line as in the line of real contenders not all MWs. So basically he needs to win 3-4 fights against contenders and he will fight him again instead of 2. It isn't like he has to go back to fighting cans and moving up the ranks.

Sonnen will be headed to WWE pretty soon.



Goodbye Tito, thanks for the 15 years of amazing fights, top level entertainment and controversy!

Not a shock to hear. STill want him to keep fighting regardless of who he fights. All I know is Sonnen is going to ruin a lot of MWs winning streaks. Im sure not a lot of MWs are lining up to fight Chael.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

It isn't surprising really. I am interested to see who they give Chael next though. Wouldn't mind a Bisping rematch somewhere down the road.


-Always Supporting-
Miesha Tate - Urijah Faber - Dustin Poirier - Frankie Edgar - Claudia Gadelha - Demian Maia - Jessica Eye

Your extreme masturbatory reaction to this whole situation makes it pretty obvious you've never been in a fight before.

Pretty lol that Silva fans fail to mention Chael has absolutely dominated 28 of the 30 minutes these two have spent in the cage.

Almost as funny as no Sonnen fan let will us forget the first fight. You know the one where Sonnen had a brain fart and got submitted.

You know that you're quoting him just quoting Dana White on the situation¿

1. 23/25 minutes.
2. Tell me Mr. "you've never been in a fight before", are we talking about competitive sports fights¿ If so, who tapped and who thereby won¿ Or are we talking about real fights¿ If so, what happens if someone on top can't inflict any damage and ends up in his opponent's triangle/armbar¿ Guess what - arm gets broken and lights go out (could even easily be death). It's just like that - in a fight, kill beats cuddle.

So what is your point again¿
