Chael Sonnen Extends Offer to Rashad Evans to Fight at UFC 167

We know that Chael Sonnen really, really wants to fight on the UFC 167 fight card. What we don’t know is if he will get the chance to do so.

Seconds after defeating former UFC champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in the main event of UFC Fight Night 26, Sonnen called for a fight against Wanderlei Silva. In answer to the call out Silva made a long video threatening all types of violence upon the face of Sonnen. Sadly, that video was all for naught, as UFC president Dana White recently revealed (via MMAJunkie.com) that Silva is injured and out of action until at least January.

During the same conversation White did say that a fight with Phil Davis could happen on the UFC 167 card, which will be the UFC’s 20th anniversary event.

Sonnen, perhaps looking to cover his bases in case the Davis fight falls through, extended an offer to his Fox Sports commentating partner Rashad Evans via twitter:

Evans replied to Sonnen’s inquiry:

Which brought this response from Sonnen:

If it wasn’t clear that Sonnen wants that co-main event spot, (or is that main event?) at UFC 167, it should be by now.

Georges St-Pierre will put his UFC welterweight title on the line against Johny Hendricks in the main event at UFC 167. The fight card will take place November 16 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
