Dana White: Chael Sonnen vs. Phil Davis ‘could happen’ at UFC 167

August 29, 2013 8:21 am by Chris Taylor

MMA fans who were hoping to see Chael Sonnen (29-13-1 MMA, 7-6 UFC) and Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC) settle their beef at UFC 167 in November are likely to be disappointed, as UFC president Dana White has indicated that “The Axe Murderer” is still recovering from a serious injury and won’t be ready until next year.

With that said, White is now considering pitting “The American Gangster” against Phil “Mr.Wonderful” Davis (12-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) at November’s UFC 167 event in Las Vegas.

Sonnen scored a huge submission victory over former UFC light heavyweight champion┬áMauricio “Shogun” Rua at the UFC Fight Night 26 event in Boston, just 12 days ago.

Meanwhile, Phil Davis’ most recent effort saw him earn a controversial split-decision win over former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 163 in Brazil.

No bout agreement between Sonnen and Davis has been signed at this time. Is this a fight you would like to see put together by UFC officials? Let’s hear it Penn Nation!
