It’s official – Wanderlei Silva will not be fighting Chael Sonnen at UFC on FS 1 in Boston. Though the bout had been hinted at for weeks, “The Axe Murderer” recently revealed he doesn’t want to fight so soon and would rather wait a bit longer before locking horns with Sonnen.
Silva spoke to SporTV where he called for the clash to take place in Brazil or on New Year’s Eve Weekend.
“I will not fight in Boston. Sonnen still has not been officially proposed. No one called me offering to fight. Is it interesting? Yes, very. But if it is held, will be after Boston. Before, or in Boston, no. Now, in Brazil would be a dream. I think he’d even have to wear armor and earplugs to walk there.”
“This year I was already two months away from home, and now I have to rest a bit. But it is so nice to be asked. Every event is missing, someone says that I will fight.”
“I’m ready for December, in the year-end event.”
