UFC Tonight (via Yahoo.com):
UFC fighter, Chael Sonnen is planning on fighting Anderson Silva, but he hasn't signed a contract yet. "I believe I have the fight. I believe it'll happen in June. But I still don't have a contract. But the 'Countdown' show is scheduled to come out to my home in two days, so I guess something is going to happen," Chael commented on "UFC Tonight".
Silva vs. Sonnen II is expected to headine UFC 147 in Sao Paolo, Brazil, on June 16th. Another long-anticipated rematch, Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderlei Silva, will co-headline the card, which will also include TUF: Brazil finals (according to MMAJunkie.com), and the Heavyweight scrap between Fabricio Werdum and Mike Russow.
