Chael Sonnen Makes His Next Fight Announcement

Chael Sonnen Makes His Next Fight Announcement

After calling out Wanderlei Silva, agreeing to face Vitor Belfort, and laughing off the notion of a Lyoto Machida match up, Chael Sonnen has his next opponent.

Sonnen confirmed while appearing on FOX Sports Live Wednesday night that he and Rashad Evans will comprise the co-main event for November’s UFC 167 card.

The event takes place November 16 from Las Vegas.

Both fighters are coming off wins, as Sonnen (29-13-1) defeated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua last month, while Evans (18-3-1) topped Dan Henderson earlier this year.
