Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva Re-Re-Booked for UFC 175 Co-Headliner, Dos Santos vs. Miocic Switched to Sao Paulo Main Event


(Silva gives the universal gesture for “Ay man, times is hard, maybe I’ll get your money next week?”)

The mystery of when Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will actually fight each other — if at all — has taken another twist. The TUF Brazil 3 coaches were first slated to settle their television rivalry at UFC 173 on May 25th in Vegas. Then, it was bumped to a week later in Sao Paulo, Brazil. And now, according to UFC president Dana White, the matchup has been pushed back five more weeks, and will serve as the co-main event of UFC 175: Weidman vs. Machida. Allegedly. Pending any sudden injury announcements.

The latest re-scheduling has caused a ripple effect of fight-reshuffling behind it. Since Chael vs. Wandy had been scheduled to headline the 5/31 Sao Paulo Fight Night card, the new headliner of that event will be Junior Dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic. And since that fight was slated as the UFC 173 co-headliner, the UFC is scrambling for another fight to support Barao vs. Dillashaw and Lawler vs. Ellenberger. Just let me know when this stuff starts to become a little confusing. I actually keep a cheat-sheet in my pocket to keep it all straight. It’s a little scrap of paper that says “www.wikipedia.com“.

Anyway, we’ll update you when Sonnen vs. Silva is canceled.
