Despite holding two exciting and decisive victories over Chael Sonnen, former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, does concede that Sonnen is more capable in some aspects.

UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen is one of those fighters who never need an introduction.  He has become a recognizable face of mixed martial arts.  That is an honor bestowed upon those who have defeated nearly every opponent, who have earned and defended titles and who have won over the crowd’s heart with their grit and skill.

Unless, of course, you’re Chael Sonnen.  He earned his position through talk, and lots of it.  In the process, he earned himself three shots at the UFC belt, all three of which he lost.  But that won’t stop Sonnen from reaching greatness.
Anderson Silva, the former UFC middleweight champion who defended his belt twice from Sonnen’s grasp, told Brazilian media outlet Metro that Sonnen has a lot ahead of him.

This guy will be the next president of the United States.  He’s smart, political, knows how to promote himself.  He’s not an athlete with great results, but he knows how to promote himself.  He knows how to use the UFC, and that’s something that many other athlete’s can’t.  He’s very intelligent.”
