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.
