Chael Sonnen Says Anderson Silva Rematch Isn’t a Go Yet, Dana White Disagrees

(Chael Sonnen posing with his favorite fake belt in front of his favorite fake backdrop.)

The UFC announced this week that middleweight champion Anderson Silva‘s highly anticipated rematch with #1 contender/doper/inspirational author/felon/snitch Chael Sonnen is to take place June 23rd in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But when our friends at MMA Fighting asked Mr. Sonnen for comment on the announcement, he claimed to have not signed a bout agreement.

“My demand has not been met…I’ve signed nothing,” he told them.

It seems likely that while his actual signing is a formality at this point, the media-savvy Sonnen is trying to add some drama and comedy to the situation. Through his twitter account, Sonnen reiterated that he had one demand that needed to be met before he signed on to fight Silva, and that he would only “declare” it to television talk show host Jim Rome.

Well, UFC President Dana White is here to squash/capitalize on Chael’s nonsense once more. “The fight is happening. He has accepted the fight, and he will be with me in Brazil for the press conference down there,” MMA Weekly reports White as saying.

Not only will the rematch happen, it will happen surrounded by what the UFC hopes will be its largest gate ever. No doubt the soccer stadium will be filled with rabid Chael Sonnen fans sworn enemies.

As to what Sonnen’s one demand for the Silva match could be, the options seem endless. Win by pin? No submissions allowed? Whatever happens in the final two minutes of the fight doesn’t count? Nothing he does or says during the fight can be held against him in a court of law for whatever felony he is next indicted for? If he gets caught in something during the fight at any point he can testify against others to avoid more serious trouble?

What do you think Sonnen’s one demand will be, ‘taters?

It is going to be a glorious moment when Chael P. Sonnen reins as middleweight king in Brazil. Gracies will relish him. Machidas with drink lemonade in his honor & Nogueiras will snap off their other arm and give it to him to use as his royal ceptor. Sonnen by submission in round 1 (omoplata crossface aka lebell lock). Long live BJJ. Long live the American Gangster

I'm getting sick of Sonnen's bullshit. Before it was funny, even entertaining, but it's just getting old and slightly annoying now. Still hopes he tears Silva apart.

I'm actually surprised that Sonnen agreed to fight in Brazil. He is a crazy mofo. if the crowd doesn't get him, he's going to get taken out by a sniper Ace Ventura style.

Um, I would hope his demand is a security escort in excess of 1000, for starters...that dude is going to die. Haven't you seen Fast Five..."This is BRAZIL!"

If Anderson didn't taunt his opponents then refuse to fight them, become "good friends" with anyone that could beat him, and dodge anyone that won't be his friend, and generally act like a smug ahole.. then I wouldn't want to see him fail so badly.

secondly, a helicopter is far to chicken shit for chael, all he would need is a thin red headband, three smoke grenades, a bag of "big league chew", and a plastic replica WWF belt, like the ones from walmart, for inspiration, since he will not be leaving with a ufc belt

i honestly think it is that anderson be made to speak english at the press conference... and post fight. my only other guess is that if he were to be in a triangle and tap to it, the round would simply be scored 10-8, in which case they would begin a following "sudden death" round. unless that round results in a triangle loss, in which case one more "sudden death" round be immediatley started. so on and so fourth.

You know what happens in soccer stadiums besides scoreless ties and dudes faking injuries . . . . . SOCCER RIOTS. And even IF Chael is able to win the fight, he is gonna lose his life. My best guess is that he will want some sort of "Pope-Mobile" type of transport to and from the octagon. I just hope one of the Nogueira brothers tries to feed it a carrot.

Loser leaves town match. Except, win or lose, Chael better run the hell outta Brazil or those "rabid Chael Sonnen <strike>fans</strike> sworn enemies" will do unexceptionable things to him.
ArmFarmer- March 29, 2012 at 10:33 am
I'm willing to overlook any wrong sonnen has done simply for the fact that he has promised to rid us of Anderson Silva. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Also, he's hilarious.

Whats your issue with Silva again?

Haha! man, that miss badonkadonk pageant was something about the trifecta - pageant winner with him in helicopter pre fight to massage his transplanted testicles

To be the judge at Brazil's next Miss Badonkadonk pagent, and Mrs. Silva has to compete in and cater for the event.

He will demand a testicle transplant so that he no longer has to undergo testosterone replacement therapy.
Corrosionform- March 29, 2012 at 9:51 am
He wants a helicopter to lift him straight up and out of the cage and stadium immediately after the fight.
Shaky- March 29, 2012 at 10:21 am
I was just thinking this. Chael wants a ridiculously expensive security entourage. He sees this as a necessity. Dana sees the bottom Chael may not be worth the money after this match...FEED HIM TO THE WOLVES...Wolves who come for to win and watch fight wivva family for Jesus
