Sonnen vs. Silva delayed till July


For the second time a fight between TUF Brazil 3 coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva has been delayed, this time until July's UFC 175:

UFC president Dana White confirmed to Yahoo Sports Monday that the heavyweight fight between former champion Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic will be the main event of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" finale on May 31 in Sao Paolo.

The bout had been the co-main event of UFC 173. The fight between TUF Brazil coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen has been moved from the May 31 card in Brazil and will now be the co-main event of UFC 175 on July 5 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, White said. The main event of UFC 175 is a middleweight title bout between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida.

I don't care what the reason is. I just didn't want to see him get shot.

Add in the fact that this is probably the biggest rivalry matchup the UFC has at the moment, and would do well on PPV. No way they put a fight like that on free tv, especially with the PPV climate for them being what it is right now. You throw that on top of Weidman-Machida on 4th of July weekend, you're gonna have a big show. Something the UFC needs badly.

Anything with Mark Hunt or Lombard on that card would make me very happy.

Has nothing to do with that.  This fight was never going to happen in Brazil (UFC's old bait-n-switch like they did to Anderson with the Chael rematch).  It got pushed back to July because Chael needs more time to adjust getting off TRT.

They are adding a new co-main to the card. We will see what it is but would love to see Mark Hunt vs ? (Maybe Nelson if he wins quickly this weekend) or a WW fight involving Lombard. Lots of possibilities depending on who is willing to fight.
