Good news for Silva fans, the UFC boss has corrected previous reports about the release of Wanderlei Silva.
MMAJunkie.com was the first to report of Silva’s release, stating that Dana White said, ‘Silva’s done in the UFC’. However those reports appear to be false.
The UFC boss also clarified the Sonnen vs. Belfort booking, stating that the two will fight at middleweight and that Belfort will be due a shot at the title should he win, but Sonnen will not have that same luxury.
Sonnen had previously stated on ‘UFC Tonight’ that his fight with Vitor was for a title shot.
There you have it, all is right with the world again.
