Chael Sonnen wants to fight Shogun, with Lil Nog out


Yesterday evening, Chael Sonnen (27-13-1 MMA, 6-6 UFC) took to his Twitter account to issue a challenge to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (21-7 MMA, 5-5 UFC).

Chael Sonnen @sonnench:

@ShogunRua I HEAR BRAZILIAN CHICKEN IS OFF THE MENU. AMERICAN GANGSTER IS STILL AVAILABLE IF YOU WANT TO SEND YOUR WAITRESS OVER.

Sonnen’s challenge came shortly after news broke that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) was forced to withdraw from his UFC 161 co-main event slot opposite Rua, due to a herniated disc.

The UFC is in desperate need of a last minute replacement for Lil Nog and the “American Gangster” seems ready and willing  to be that guy.

UFC 161 takes place Saturday June 15 live from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

    Shogun would destroy this clown.

  2. Dddddd says:

    Innnteresting,
    This could be a great match. It’s a good opportunity for Shogun to shine for Brazil. Chael won’t have to even try to put him on his back but he will have to protect against a sub when he does. I’m sure Chael helped Hendo prepare for his fight with Shogun and probably would be better prepared considering.
    A couple of tenacious dudes.

  3. Sonnen! Sonnen! says:

    ..whooaaaaaaaaaaa Sonnen! (you can hear the Brazilians chanting…..)

  4. Semtex says:

    I pray to God this doesn’t happen. Chael vs worst takedown defense in UFC LHW history (yes, it’s a fact)…hmm…i wonder how this is gonna look

  5. Drew says:

    Sonnen taking this one

  6. 757 says:

    Actually Shogun dominated Hendo in the last two rounds of their fight. In the last fight he had Hendo on his back. Shogun has a head like a rock also AND Sonnen can’t punch. Shogun has awesome submissions as well. Sonnen is getting busted up in this one. Daddy Dana will have no choice but to send this clown packing after this one.

    last round he had Hendo on his back I meant to say
