Ed Soares Confirms Silva vs. Sonnen II Contracts Signed for Rio on Original Date


By Lynn Mitchell:
Fans around the world will finally get to see the most anticipated rematch of UFC history.   Middleweight, Anderson “the Spider” Silva, the seemingly untouchable UFC Champ will face once again, Chael Sonnen, the only man to beat Anderson for 4 rounds – only to be trapped by the Spider’s triangle.

Silva’s long time friend and manager – Ed Soares released the statement we have all been waiting for on Tatame.com.

 “The contracts were signed two weeks ago, the fight will happen on June 23 in Rio de Janeiro”

On the contrary, UFC President Dana White said he wasn’t sure of the date due to Rio+20 and mentioned a possible move of dates to June 30th – during the Fuel TV post press conference this past weekend.

The dates may be confused and Soares says, the Spider Camp has not been contacted about this but it looks as though the contract is signed and the fight will happen.  Let the Chael Show begin!

  1. Scott says:

    So pumped for this fight…. I can’t wait to see what Sonnen says after he does a tap dance out of Brazil!

  2. Kayce says:

    This is just a waste of a main event….. Why tools does chael sonnen posess that could even phase Silva? Sonnen doesn’t deserve the title shot.

    I don’t get why people are hyped about this fight. Too much credit is given to Chael Sonnen. He’s garbage, and you prolly just got into MMA within the past 5 years if you’re actually excited to see this fight. This is just Dana trying to make money off of BS.

    I really hope the UFC and it’s fans don’t turn into the WWE.

      Probably started MMA 5 years ago??? He started in 1997 and his second fight was against Mayhem Miller. He has back to back title over the 2 of the divisions top 10 and already beat Anderson Silva for the belt. Educate yourself you fool.

      “I’d beat up Machida on the way to the ring to beat up Anderson, and I’ll kick Nogueria’s ass in the parking lot on the way to my after party.”- Chael. P. Sonnen

      • Xaninho says:

        Already beat Anderson Silva? That belt he had was a fake one…you do realize that right? And he’s a mediocre fighter at best. His mediocre record shows that.

        Without the 16:1 testosterone ratio he won’t be able to make it out of the first round.

      • Anthony says:

        Wow TheDuke “Educate yourself you fool” he meant that you must have just started watching MMA in the last 5 years, not how long Phael sonnens’ been fighting. also how in the fuck did he beat Silva he was roided up while Anderson had severely bruised ribs (somewhere in the fight i think first round got fractured) and still got submitted. The referee stopped the fight because Phael taped out/quit/gave up/admitted defeat. Bruce buffer announced that Anderson was the winner due to tap out. Dana gave Anderson the belt. Andersons record is still undefeated (in the UFC) and is still going on. Every well respected web site and the official record says Anderson won. So how you get that he won I have no idea unless you are delusional and/or not mentally all there and/or a Pheal sonnen nuthuger.

        • Chael P Sonnen says:

          Chael Sonnen is the undefeated and Undisputed champion Chael Sonnen said it himself he went and took the belt from Anderson Silva. Silvas old and over the hill. You have a choice you can either belive me or your lying eyes.

        • Anthony says:

          You have a choice believe me, every other person that’s not delusional, and facts or the lying delusional Phael and your lying delusional eyes and brain.So by that logic if I say I took the belt from Anderson and Phael Sonnen is old and over the hill. Then it is true

  3. Kayce says:

    What**

  4. Cagin says:

    Kayce, I have been watching MMA for much longer than 5 years. Therefore I am getting bored of it. Chael keeps it interesting.

    What tools does he posses?? Are you fucking kidding me?
    silver medal Olympic wrestler. Beat the shit out of silva for 24 minutes.

  5. Nils says:

    Kayce did u watch the first fight? Chael had that fight won. Anderson got lucky with a triangle. Chael will win this next fight.

    • Xaninho says:

      What’s lucky about slapping on a triangle and choking a bum out? You’re saying it wasn’t an intentional triangle? He accidentally, magically put his legs up and choked Sonnen out til he tapped?

      Nothing lucky about it. He executed the triangle with great precision and made him tap.

  6. Chael P Sonnen says:

    Probably started MMA 5 years ago??? He started in 1997 and his second fight was against Mayhem Miller. He has back to back title defences over the 2 of the divisions top 10 and already beat Anderson Silva for the belt. Educate yourself you fool.

  7. Saquan says:

    Kayce, you sir are a fucking idiot. sonnen will dominate silva once again and this time he will win the belt.

    • Xaninho says:

      Without the 16:1 testosterone ratio? Did you see how Bisping was robbed by the judges?

      And you’re calling Kayce a fucking idiot?

      Please stop commenting, for your own good….just stop it.
