As usual with Chael Sonnen, he is always looking ahead.
“Two things need to happen,” Sonnen said. “There is a fight that will happen and a particular outcome to happen. We also need to get rid of this bum (Silva). There are a few moving parts, but if it happens – and I hope it will on both sides – I have a fight lined (up) (at) middleweight.”
Sonnen didn’t further elaborate who that “opponent” could be. He recently concluded filming The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil alongside Silva, and asked that the match be moved from Las Vegas to the South American country.
The Sonnen-Silva fight is scheduled to take place at light heavyweight, a division both have occupied recently.
It wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense, but don’t you think Sonnen could be positioning himself for a third meeting with Anderson Silva? Possibly in Brazil, for Silva’s return from his broken leg?
