He may be one of the best trash talkers in the business but that doesn't stop UFC Middleweight contender Chael Sonnen from having his mother by his side as he prepares for another crack at the UFC Middleweight title this weekend when he faced Anderson Silva at UFC 148.

Sonnen talked about his mom being in his corner via Yahoo!:

“My mom is the definition of supportive, so is my dad. I was really lucky like that. It wouldn't matter what we were doing, my mom would be there every part of it. She really likes this sport. She really likes one-on-one sports. I came from a wrestling family. But she's just there to help. I can't really say everything that she does. She takes care of a lot. She would be in charge of the water, Vaseline, making sure the gear is ready, mouthpieces washed. And then again after practice getting everything. If I had to give her a title, she's the cornerman in practice.”
