Sonnen is expected to continue his verbal onslaught during in the Primetime build-up for UFC 148. Here's a nice quote from the preview:
"I've been paying the price since I was 9 years old when I started. I've sacrificed everything, and I would give everything I've got. Everything. I would give it all back to be a world champion for one night. I don't like this guy. That's not a secret. I wanna beat him up, and I'm gonna beat him up. Again."
