Chael Sonnen pushed Anderson Silva to the absolute limits in his last time in the Octagon. At UFC 136 he made his return and faced Brian Stann, a man on a mission for a middleweight title shot of his own.

Sonnen looked in form in the first round, getting an early takedown and dominating on the ground. He worked from back control, mount and inside the guard, landing punches and elbows while never finding himself in any danger. It was total domination.

Unfortunately for Stann, it didn't get any better in the second round as Sonnen quickly took him down and resumed his dominance. Despite a horrific stand up when both men were working, Sonnen scored another takedown and locked up an arm triangle and forced the submission.

Sonnen looked like he hadn't lost a thing in the cage and on the mic he was no different.

Sonnen challenged Anderson Silva in the ring saying "Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck" and challenging him to a fight on Super Bowl weekend. Sonnen said that he wanted to "Up the stakes" saying that if he wins Silva needs to leave the middleweight division, and if Silva wins he (Chael) will retire from the UFC.
