Thread: Another rumor by FRB. Anderson refuses fight in America

  1. Default Another rumor by FRB. Anderson refuses fight in America

    https://twitter.com/#!/FrontRowBrian

    Major story breaking in Atlanta. Anderson Silva has told Dana White he NOT fight Chael Sonnen unless it's in Brazil.

    Uncle Dana is beyond frustrated with Anderson. Let's see if he can convince Anderson to fight in Vegas. Dana playing hardball

    UFC147 presser in Rio on 4 Tues. Anderson will be present. Dana will announce date change to Vegas. Dana will fire AS if he declines fight

    Should Anderson be fired, Sonnen v. @Bisping II is the back up plan for July 7 for the belt
    Wow...

    Wow, I don't know about fired, but definitely stripped of the title. The job of a champ is to fight whoever is put infront of you, when and where you're told to. Plain and simple.

    He's usually pretty credible...

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    Don't know the legitimacy, but I love to speculate so here goes. This would be a big move if it were true. It takes a lot of balls for Dana White to fire Anderson Silva, especially because in my mind it would delegitimize the middleweight title, everyone would know that AS is the best. That being said, now is the best time to do a move like this because there's no place for Anderson to go, there's no other really big market.

    I have to think that Anderson stands to lose a handsome sum of endorsement $$$ if this fight moves from Brazil to America. Yes, Anderson is a diva, but I can understand why he'd be reluctant to relocate.
