UFC president Dana White was a guest on the Dave And Mahoney radio show out of Las Vegas Tuesday morning. When asked about Chael Sonnen's standing in the light heavyweight division, White was very forthcoming.
"He's a long way away," White said (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for transcribing). "He's not coming off the (Anderson) Silva fight and just talking his way into a 205-pound world title shot."
Sonnen (28-12-1) is 6-5 in his UFC career, but was able to secure himself a pair of UFC middleweight title fights, thanks in large part to his public feud with Silva. He's done much of the same trash-talking in recent weeks in regards to Jones.
