Anderson Silva certainly doesn’t want to fight Chael Sonnen, but fortunately for everyone he doesn’t get to make these decisions. Ceasar calls the shots, and Ceasar follows the money. On Wednesday Dana White confirmed that Chael would be next up for the Spider:
“It’s the fight that everybody wants to see. People want to see Chael vs. Anderson,” White said. “Anderson is in this position where he feels like the guy is so disrespectful he doesn’t want to give him a shot.
“But Anderson will end up fighting Chael. The answer is yes.”
White did not say when or where the fight would take place. Silva is currently recovering from a shoulder injury.
Now we just have to hope that shoulder injury doesn’t conveniently leave Anderson Silva sidelined forever and ever. Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time people have suspected Anderson of overstating an injury in order to make the UFC ‘reconsider’ who he’s going to fight.
