SONNEN VS. SILVA SET FOR UFC 147 IN BRAZIL

By: Anthony L. Gonzalez

Chael Sonnen will be fighting against Anderson Silva in Brazil in June. This will be one of the biggest UFC events in years . The fight will take place at Havlange Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Chael Sonnen was dominating Anderson Silva for 4 and half rounds before Anderson Silva pulled of a triangle submission victory in August of 2010. Anderson Silva is the Real Combat Media’s “Pound For Pound King” and has not lost since 2006 by a disqualification.

Chael Sonnen is the number one contender at Middleweight and is coming off a FOX 2 split decision victory over Michael Bisping . He also defeated Brian Stann in 2011 by a submission choke.

Also fighting on the UFC 147 will be two Brazilian legends, Wanderlei Silva vs. Vitor Belfort.

“This will be the biggest sporting event of the year,” said UFC president Dana White. “Bigger than the NFL, the NBA, you name it – UFC 147 will be the biggest. The whole world wants to see this fight between Silva and Sonnen. We are broadcast in over 150 countries in 22 languages in half a billion homes. Wherever those fans are, they are going to be watching this fight.”
