Rumors of a rematch between current middleweight champion of the UFC Anderson Silva and his nemesis Chael Sonnen have been swirling ever since Sonnen’s victory over Brian Stann at UFC 136.

In a recent interview on Brazilian TV show anchored by journalist Marilia Gabriela, Silva said he has no reason to offer Chael a rematch.
