Dana White: Silva doesn't want to fight Sonnen, but I'm working to make it happenPosted on October 28, 2011, 02:21 PM by Anton Gurevich
UFC President Dana White shared thoughts about this weekend's UFC 137 fight card in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be headlined by Nick Diaz's return to the Octagon against BJ Penn, after a long history of missed press conferences, media calls and speculations whether Cesar Gracie's product is going to make it into the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Dana White also related to the potential rematch between Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva, claiming that he's still working on putting this fight together. White revealed Siva doesn't want to fight "the disrespectful punk" Sonnen, who according to "The Spider" should be denied a title shot for crossing the line with his verbal outbursts. White admitted that if Chael Sonnen got under Silva's skin so bad, the UFC Middleweight Champion should simply step up to the occasion and punish the Oregonian by himself.
