Video: UFC 136's Chael Sonnen is the true champion, linear champion, peoples champion ...

… And the best damn middleweight there has ever been:

"Anderson Silva is a nuisance to me and a thorn in my side. But, Im not delusional. I understand what his skill set is, I understand that he's got what I want. I'm not crazy. I get it that he's a good, skilled guy. At the same time, he's a chicken, he's a coward and he won't fight me. [In the rematch] We're going to play for keeps this time. Winner takes all."

We're off, just like that.
