Dana White Confirms Chael Sonnen Next For "The Spider"

November 10, 2011 9:00 am by Pedro Carrasco

“It’s the fight that everybody wants to see, people want to see Chael vs. Anderson. Anderson is in this position where he feels like this guy is so disrespectful he doesn’t want to give him a shot, but Anderson will end up fighting Chael Sonnen. The answer is yes [Chael Sonnen is next].”

On yesterday’s Jim Rome’s nationally syndicated radio show, UFC president Dana White answered the question that many fans have been pondering… Who is next for Anderson Silva?

Fighter’s the likes of Michael Bisping, “Mayhem” Miller and Mark Munoz are all lobbying for a chance to fight for the UFC’s middleweight title, but the boisterous and self promoting Chael Sonnen has apparently received the nod to face Anderson Silva yet again, for the second time.

Anyone surprised?
