Sonnen vs. Silva finally official for May


A match between TUF Brazil 3 coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen had been speculated for May, but now it is official as both have signed bout agreements:

The light heavyweight bout in February had been moved from UFC 173 in Las Vegas to a May 31 card in Brazil. But in recent weeks, both the location of that card, and the definitive nature of its proposed main event, had been unconfirmed.

On Sunday in Brazil, though, UFC executive Grace Tourinho confirmed to MMAjunkie that Sao Paulo will play host, and that the ink apparently is dry enough on the bout agreement between Sonnen (28-14-1 MMA, 7-6 UFC) and Silva (35-12-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC) to make things official. Tourinho revealed the news at the post-event news conference for UFC Fight Night 38, which took place at Ginasio Nelio Dias in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.

Wonder what the reason for the hang up was. My guess is Wand wanted more money but who knows.Maybe that or he wanted to make sure certain fighters on his team got a contract with the UFC.

Funny this cry baby Wand got his way and got the fight in Brazil. Chael already had to put up with his shit on the show in Brazil. But that's fine because now Chael will knock him out infront of his fans.

That or Chael heard Wand had signed. They just hadn't made the announcement yet. Maybe Chael just wanted to make Wand look like he was scared of fake blackmail. Haha Chael is a smart guy
