Having overcome Michael Bisping, Chael Sonnen earned his right to challenge Anderson Silva for his middleweight belt for a second time. Sonnen will try to return the setback he suffered at UFC 117, when he ended up getting submitted late in the fifth round after thoroughly dominating the action leading up to that fateful moment.
Just after Sonnen won his fight last night, Silva took to Twitter:
“If you cannot understand that heaven should be within you, there is no point in searching for it above the clouds and beside the stars,” was the Spider’s enigmatic tweet.
Not long later he was more straightforward:
“As hard as I try, I am not the best, but I am capable of doing what so many think impossible. I’ll do my job like I always do. And above all, I will honor my team, my family, and my Brazil.”
The fight is being tipped to take place in São Paulo, Brazil.
