MMAweekly.com reported earlier today that a rematch between WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen is set to happen on March 26th at the WEC's next event scheduled to take place at the Rock Hard Hotel and Casino is Las Vegas, NV.

The previous bout between the two ended in controversy when the ref stepped in to stop the fight after Paulo Filho secured an armbar with 5 seconds left in the second round. Sonnen did not tap but the ref said that Sonnen verbally submitted.

During the first round of the title bout, Sonnen knocked down Filho and screamed to the ref that Filho was out. The fight was not stopped and continued until the 2nd round finish.

With the March 26th bout now set, both fighters will be able to set this and hopefully it ends with less controversy
