LAS VEGAS - If Chael Sonnen and Rashad (Suga) Evans share one sentiment, it’s that the loser can’t afford to give the winner bragging rights.

The two top-10 light-heavyweights will battle in the co-main event of UFC 167 in Las Vegas Saturday.

Though Sonnen and Evans are known for their talents inside the cage, they’re also renowned for their respective trash talk outside of it. Despite this, the two have remained respectful leading up to this weekend’s encounter.

Not only are the two good friends, they often work together as analysts for FOX. They’re even scheduled to cover a weigh-in show two weeks following their fight.
