Chael Sonnen looked to climb the rankings in the main event at UFC Fight Night 26 against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
Right after the bell sounded in the first round, Sonnen took Shogun right to the mat. He landed some nice ground and pound, but the Brazilian was able to make his way back to his feet. Upon returning to the feet, Sonnen snatched ahold of Shogun’s neck, pulled guard and forced Shogun to tap due to the guillotine choke late in the opening stanza.
