Chael Sonnen Accepts Anderson Silva’s Challenge To Fight Him In Brazil

[blackbirdpie id=”138462332421545985″]

Anderson Silva didn’t accept Chael Sonnen’s challenge, but Chael Sonnen has accepted his.

Last week, Anderson Silva told MMA Nation that he would give Chael Sonnen his rematch if he went down to Brazil to get it. Well, as you can see from his tweet above, Sonnen has agreed.

Of course, this is all talk until the bout agreements are signed, but all signs are pointing to Silva vs. Sonnen 2 going down in Brazil. Or more specifically San Paulo. When asked about unconfirmed reports claiming Silva will fight in San Paulo in June at the UFC 139 post-fight press conference, Dana White all but confirmed that that’s the plan.

“How’s this stuff get out?” he said, before changing gears and trying to play it coy, yet gleefully unsubtle. “I don’t know if we’re going to Sao Paulo in June, and if Anderson Silva’s headlining the card. No clue. That would be awesome, though.”

Yes it would. Silva vs. Sonnen 2 in Brazil would definitely be awesome.
