Sonnen challenges Evans to fight at UFC 167


With Wanderlei Silva still recovering from an injury, and Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort already matched up, Chael Sonnen is left without an opponent he's interested in. UFC President Dana White earlier this week suggested a potential bout with Phil Davis, however Sonnen has plans of his own:

@sonnench: @SugaRashadEvans Hey Rashad, let me ask you a question... You busy Nov 16th?

@SugaRashadEvans: Nah not really!! What's up?

@sonnench: Ill give you one hint...

@SugaRashadEvans: @sonnench @rossfinkelstein that looks like a good idea to me! I knew you had something you really wanted to say to me yesterday on the show!

The tone of the tweets seem friendly, so it's unsure if Sonnen is serious about the bout with Evans or maybe a fan just made a poster and Sonnen showed it to Evans.

Just the opening twitter intro was funny as shit. They should crack jokes and make subtle innuendos while broadcasting instead of hyping the fight at all.

If it's not Chael v Vitor or Machida at 185 I'm not nearly as interested... those 2 matchups would be amazing at 185 to me. Wanderlei would be a fun fight too but i hear he wont be ready until spring. Chael at 205 against wrestlers like Davis and Evans doesn't get me all that pumped up. If he fought Texeira that might be interesting (much more interesting than Bader imo)

i like that he doesn't run from elite wrestlers.  many fighters want some angle of advantage when throwing out challenges but these guys are pretty even

Meh. My first thought was that I actually like this fight. But then I realized they work together and are probably cool with each other so the pre fight build up is gonna be fake and they both know theyre gonna make a shit load of money.

I would rather see Chael fight Phil Davis. Rashad is boring as heck.
