Chael Sonnen pulled off a shocking submission victory over Mauricio (Shogun) Rua in the main event of UFC Fight Night 26 in Boston Saturday.

Sonnen immediately went to his bread and butter, wrestling Rua to the mat and unloading with punches from inside the Brazilian's half-guard. As the former light-heavyweight champ attempted to return to his feet, Sonnen locked in a tight guillotine choke for the win.

Sonnen proceeded called out Wanderlei Silva.
