UFC President Dana White comments when asked about a third bout between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen.

“[Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen] is the biggest everything in UFC history. It’s the biggest rivalry, the biggest fight. We broke every record as far as the business goes that we’ve ever had this weekend…. This one was pretty decisive. He’s beat him twice. It’s not like this is the rubber match. He beat him twice. He beat him. Chael is in a position that most guys are — when you go on a run at the title, and you lost two times, back at the end of the line.”

However this has not stopped Sonnen’s team from lobbying for a rematch. The request is based Anderson Silva gaining unfair advantages in the UFC 148 main event through rubbing Vaseline on his chest and shoulders and grabbing Sonnen’s shorts. They also claim that the knee Silva hit Sonnen with when he was down did actually strike the face of the challenger.
