UFC Light Heavyweight Chael Sonnen recently spent some time calling out Wanderlei Silva across all sorts of social media and to anyone who would listen. Sonnen even went as far as to say he would donate part of his purse to a charity if Silva agreed to fight him with in 24 hours of the post, and when Silva didn’t respond he let everyone know. Silva later said he was never given an offer by the UFC, and now Sonnen is saying he is no longer interested in the fight Silva. There is a very good possibility that this is just more lobbying from Sonnen to get the fight made on the Boston card.
Sonnen told MMAHeat:
“I’m not looking for it anymore, I don’t like to bully guys. I tried to fight him, he doesn’t want to fight. I’m not gonna stick a finger in a guy’s chest. If a guy says ‘no,’ I’m not gonna be a jerk about it.”
