After an abrupt end to his UFC career, Chael Sonnen scheduled to fight Andre Galvao at Metamoris 4 next month. After a hearing with the NSAC Sonnen was suspended for two years from MMA, leaving many fans to speculate whether or not he will fight in the UFC once his suspension is up.
His opponent leading up to his fight that got scrapped, Wanderlei Silva spoke with Submission Radio about a potential bout with Sonnen after his suspension is up.
“I think he retired just for now, I think after finishing his suspension, he’s gonna (come) back. I hope this fight is gonna happen.”
“Yeah this is bad for everyone, bad for him, bad for me, bad for the fans who want so much that fight. But I’m gonna (be) waiting for him.”
“I think that in the last two fights I made the two bonuses, the fight of the night and knockout of the night. You know I make my fights exciting and I’m really entertaining, and I’m still fighting good. And when the body’s working good, I’ll go. When I can’t do it anymore, I’ll try and do other things. Right now it’s good for me.”
