Chael Sonnen gives a really candid interview about mental toughness and also gives his take on Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez. Sonnen talks about his losses and how he has overcame these missteps in his career.

All of ’em and I was ahead on all the cards and I started to look at that and said man something’s going on here, this isn’t a physical problem, cause physically I’m dominating. I don’t say that to be a jerk, I was dominating the top guys out there, but I would lose and it kept happening…so I started to look into it(researching the mental side of MMA).”
