Wanderlei Silva didn’t let the 24-hour deadline set by Chael Sonnen expire, though, he also didn’t technical confirm the fight.

Sonnen made it clear he wants Silva for his next bout, and it appears as if “The Axe Murderer” is down, as well.

Sonnen had previously called out Silva, and proceeded to issue a 24-hour deadline for the former PRIDE champion to accept.

Silva defeated Brian Stann earlier this year, while Sonnen lost to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
