Chael Sonnen isn't about to go away quietly into the night. His loss to Jon Jones in their UFC 159 bout was pretty one-sided, but he's made it clear that he has no plans to retire. After all, there's money to be made against all the people he has called out over the last couple of years, and one of them is Wanderlei Silva. Sonnen indirectly stated on UFC Tonight last week that he'd like to face Silva next, and he made it abundantly clear on twitter tonight:
Wand- you have 24 hours to accept. If you do, I will donate 10% of my purse to help schools in your hometown of Curitiba .. I mean, VEGAS.— chael sonnen (@sonnench) May 9, 2013
Sonnen (27-13-1) has lost two fights in a row, but they were against the top 2 P4P guys in MMA. Silva (35-12-1, 1 NC) is coming off a big knockout win over Brian Stann in the main event of UFC on Fuel 8 in Japan. The bout has been rumored as the main event of the first UFC on Fox Sports event in Boston in August, but nothing has been confirmed yet. The bout is the kind of thing that makes for a good co-main event - it features two big names, but it's ultimately irrelevant. But the main event? I'm not so sure. We'll have to see how it all shakes out though.
