Chael Sonnen accepts Anderson Silva's terms: "Brazil it is"Posted on November 21, 2011, 09:39 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Chael Sonnen has been on a one man mission to do anything he can to goad UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva into a fight. He’s made disparaging remarks about him, his country and his wife, he’s called Silva out in the middle of the Octagon in hopes that Silva would take a fight with him in Las Vegas on Super Bowl weekend and for the most part, Silva has taken the high road.
Silva’s tone on the subject changed recently when he, speaking to MMANation.com, said, "I don't like this guy. This guy (wants to) fight me? Go to Brazil. No problem. ... Chael talks too much. I'm ready to fight Chael. But you have the chance – go to Brazil to fight me."
That comeback to Sonnen was offered up on November 16 and Sonnen responded via twitter, “I accept Anderson. Brazil it is. Now then, about that meal...”
Rumors are that the UFC will have a fight card in Brazil in June; will it feature a main event between Silva and Sonnen?
