UFC 133: Evans vs. Sonnen?


With Machida and Ortiz apparently turning down the opportunity to face Evans in  the main event of UFC 133, the UFC is now looking for an opportunist to take the fight.  Why not Chael Sonnen?  This seems to be a good fit and provides plenty of upside.  First, Sonnen is a big MW and Evans is a smaller LHW, so the size difference won't be that bad.  Plus, Sonnen was challenging Machida to a LHW fight for his return already.  Which leads me to the second point.  Sonnen can say, "I'll take the fight Machida was afraid to take!"  That certainly helps sell this thing.  Third, the trash talk between Evans and Sonnen over the next three weeks will be fantastic.  That sound you hear is PPV numbers climbing well past what Evans vs. Davis would have done.  And finally, does anyone care about Sonnen vs. Stann?  We're not going to get the standard Chael trash talk and beating Stann really doesn't push Sonnen.  A win over a top LHW however, virtually guarantees a MW title shot in his next fight.  The UFC can find someone else for Stann and he can continue his growth as a fighter.  C'mon Dana White!  Make this happen!  Tweet Chael and get him on board!
