Chael Sonnen Talks “Mental Toughness” and Training Video For UFC 117 Title Fight Against Anderson Silva

Chael Sonnen was preparing at Team Quest Portland for his upcoming title fight against UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva at UFC 117 on Aug. 7 in Oakland, CA. Chael goes through a sparring workout here with his teammates and Team Quest head coach Robert Follis stops them periodically during the workout and makes them work from specific situations, then right back to sparring.

In part 2 of the Chael Sonnen Series, Chael talks about the mental side of the sport and addresses some mental hurdles that he has overcome. He lost a lot of fights by submission after he was dominating his opponents and came to the realization that it was not a physical problem but a mental one. He has talked with people about that and feels that he has figured out something mentally which has allowed him to push forward and break through mentally.
