After things didn't go his way at UFC 148 against Andesron Silva with the UFC Middleweight Championship on the line, Chael Sonnen has been asked numerous times just what went wrong inside the Octagon after months of trash talking.

Sonnen hasn't had any excuses for the loss but on UFC Tonight this week, he opened up on what he felt was a defining moment during the bout:

“Listen, you wanna really know what happened? Everything's going fine. I'm minding my own business. I'm out there, in the middle of a fist fight. I look up–in between rounds–and this is a true story–I see Kenny Florian and he's got like a buffet style [dinner] in front of him. He's stuffing his face. And I get completely distracted. Next thing I know, the ref says 'are you ready?' And I'm thinking, 'no I'm not'. And I've gotta walk out there anyway.”
