Dana says Anderson will be fighting Chael

Anderson Silva certainly doesn’t want to fight Chael Sonnen, but fortunately for everyone he doesn’t get to make these decisions. Ceasar calls the shots, and Ceasar follows the money. On Wednesday Dana White confirmed that Chael would be next up for the Spider:

“It’s the fight that everybody wants to see. People want to see Chael vs. Anderson,” White said. “Anderson is in this position where he feels like the guy is so disrespectful he doesn’t want to give him a shot.

“But Anderson will end up fighting Chael. The answer is yes.”

White did not say when or where the fight would take place. Silva is currently recovering from a shoulder injury.

Now we just have to hope that shoulder injury doesn’t conveniently leave Anderson Silva sidelined forever and ever. Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time people have suspected Anderson of overstating an injury in order to make the UFC ‘reconsider’ who he’s going to fight.

    Did he even get tested for PED’s last fight?

    it’s texas, so no

    Chael is an honest individual and athlete that would never do or say anything that would disrespect a person or the sport.

    I’m looking forward to this fight.

    Way I see it, there’s a win-win here.

    Chael wins, then I get to see Silva’s goofy ass get beat.

    Silva wins, I get to see the biggest troll in fighting history get beat.

    In a way I can get behind Anderson’s stance not wanting to give troll another shot but he says he wants big fights and this is the biggest fight he can make right now. I am hoping this can bring out the killer instinct in Anderson we all want to see. Shit I’m all for Andy going Falcao on his ass!

    Wow FL!  A link to a lousy article from back in Sept. of 09′, & no one even commented on it back then??  I think you like abuse more than anyone on the planet!

    The truth was Anderson being on a PRIDE like missioin, that night, to make an example of Chael.  Broken rib or not, the match was Nogueira-esque, and left little doubt IMHO as to whom’s Champion.

    By the way,  I’m diggin’ the upgrades to the margin’s on the side!  How much did Obama for America give you to get the banner?  

    You can keep the Rebellion Media Banner, and I don’t wanna know how much you bent over for the UFC; but brother, if I don’t get a dislike button, at least gimmie some sorta thumbs-up-er-down system!

  • G Funk

    Rodzilla? might as well ask for CRS as that vato hasn’t posted an article since 2009.

    Face it Penix it’s up to you and Leti to keep this site interesting as all of Frick’s golden series stories have been told.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Oh man, CRS would blow the roof off this place if he posted now.  Memories.

    We need TakeItEasy and CRS to do lead-ins for fight nights since Ryan and Jake won’t do anything anymore.  Or how about  Rod and Subo?  Jackal Radio was the dopest thing Subo’s ever done not named Cerrone.
