Sonnen wants trilogy fight with Silva

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Despite having lost a middleweight championship bout with Anderson Silva twice, Chael Sonnen would still like yet another shot at him he said on today’s media conference call:

If Anderson beats Chris Weidman, they’ll go into a rubber match, but I want to fight Anderson either way, regardless of the title. I don’t accept the outcome of either of those matches. We can fight; it doesn’t have to be for a belt. I don’t always chase titles around. I wanted to fight Jon Jones. He just happened to have the title. I want to fight Anderson Silva whether he’s got the belt or not. I’d like to fight him right now.
