Well, well, well. Guess who’s lobbying to replace an injured fighter on short notice again?
Yesterday, we informed you that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira had to pull out of his UFC 161 bout with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua less than two weeks before they were scheduled for their much-anticipated rematch. The UFC insists that “Shogun” is staying on the card, but the former champ needs an opponent and who in their right mind wants to fight someone as good as Rua on such short notice?
You guessed it,
Frank Stallone Chael “P-Money” Sonnen:
BOOM! ROASTED. In case you’re wondering, Rua has not responded to Sonnen on twitter.
Sonnen is little more than a month removed from dominating one of Jon Jones’ toes and getting his own ass kicked by the rest of the champ. The loss was Sonnen’s second consecutive and his third loss in his last five fights. All three of those losses have come at the hands of men named either Jon Jones or Anderson Silva, so it isn’t as if Chael is losing to schmucks. He is losing, though,
What do you say, nation? Do you want to see Sonnen step in against “Shogun?” If not him, then who would you rather see in the spot?
