Chael Sonnen has a chance to win the UFC Light Heavyweight title this weekend and spoke about his opponent and current UFC Champ Jon Jones during the UFC 159 pre-fight conference. Sonnen gave his opinion on who he feels is better between Jones and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva:

“I don't think they're close,” Sonnen said. “I think Jon is considerably better than Anderson.”

“Look, here's the reality with Anderson,” Sonnen said. “I stomped that guy, and you can pick up his little arm as many times as you want and call him the winner, but the fact is I whipped his ass for 30 minutes. He got to jump on me for less than 30 seconds. He never knocked me down. I fell down. They say Anderson's the best pound-for-pound. He's not the best round-for-round.”
