    Default Dana White: Chael Sonnen vs. Phil Davis 'could happen' at UFC 167

    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...pen-at-ufc-167

    But White reiterated on Wednesday following the post-event news conference for UFC Fight Night 27 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis that Silva was injured.

    "He's not going to be healthy till January," White said. "He can't even start training till January."

    So that rules him out of the running for UFC 167, which takes place Nov. 16 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

    White said Sonnen, who recently has challenged for titles in both the middleweight and light heavyweight very likely could wind up getting his wish to fight on the card – and hinted that a recent Davis callout of Sonnen could lead to a pairing of the two in a light heavyweight bout.

    "We talked a little bit tonight," White said of Sonnen. "He wants to fight on that 20th anniversary card. He wants to co-main that (card). I'm working on it. That fight (against Phil Davis) could happen."

    Prior to Sonnen's win over Rua, he dropped a light heavyweight title fight to champ Jon Jones. Before that, he was stopped in the second by Anderson Silva in a middleweight title rematch.

    Davis, meanwhile, is coming off a split-decision win over former champion that gave him a three-fight winning streak.
    *Yawn

    Out of all the possible Sonnen fights out there, this one doesn't interest me even a little.

    I've thought quite a few people would beat Phil and was completely wrong. This time though I'm right. Chael will beat him much like Rashad if this fight happens.

    Well let's be fair, you'd say that if Chael was fighting Emmanuel Lewis. We'll make any sig bet you'd like if the fight happens. I'd rather see him face Machida at 185. Davis clearly lost that fight so he should take a step back. I despise Sonnen, but can't see any way he loses to Phil. I hope it's five rounds.

    Sounds good. I would personally like to see Sonnen fight Glover.

    Or maybe they are trying to build Davis up to a title fight... even though his win over Machida was controversial tack on a win over Chael and he's on a win streak and I could see them putting him against Jones.
