Sonnen challenges Evans to fight at UFC 167

Friday, August 30, 2013

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.
