Chael Sonnen stopped by Yahoo! Sports studios and talked about the person who has supported him throughout his combat sports career: his mother. She even serves as a the "cornerman of practice."

See? Chael has a soft side. He loves his mama and helped out Olympic wrestling. Chael, you can run, you can hide, but you can't deny it. You're a nice guy.
