| | Silva vs. Sonnen II to probably take place in Las Vegas
Link to full article: Silva vs. Sonnen II to probably take place in Las Vegas :: TATAME
Chael Sonnen’s rematch against Anderson Silva, for the UFC middleweight title, may not happen in hostile territory. |
"O Globo" reported today that the bout will be moved to Las Vegas, and rumors indicate that it might happen in UFC’s July 7th show (UFC 148).
Anderson Silva’s manager Ed Soares told TATAME on Monday that the bout is already signed for June 23, in Rio de Janeiro, but his Black House partner, Jorge Guimaraes, told TATAME today that the plans could change.
“This situation is already being discussed. There are some speculations. What you heard, I heard too. It seems like there are no hotels to fit everybody with UN’s event, Rio+20”, Guiamares said.
“(Silva vs. Sonnen’s venue and date) will be announced by Dana White in a press conference in Brazil. Nothing is confirmed yet”.
UFC president Dana White, along with Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, will host a press conference in Brazil next Tuesday.
The “Spider”, who demanded that the rematch needed to take place in Brazil, will accept to fight in Nevada?
“That you have to ask Anderson. I don’t know,” Jorge said. “First it has to be moved, than we’ll see”.
Weren't they planning to have Vitor vs Wanderlei on the same card as Silva vs Sonnen II? What are the implications for the change of venue?
This stadium show feels cursed.
