Silva vs Sonnen II: UFC 117 Rematch Rumor

Chael Sonnen will have his chance to redeem himself against Anderson Silva, an opponent Sonnen obliterated for a good 23 solid minutes, only to lose in the final 2 minutes from a triangle armbar submission.

According to Lance Pugmire of The Los Angeles Times, the fight will go down on either the New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl weekend card. The fight’s date will really depend on Silva, who is suffering from bruised ribs (an injury he apparently had 6 days before UFC 117) . If this ailment continues, the fight will most likely have to be pushed back to Super Bowl Saturday, making Super Bowl weekend one of the most anticipated two-day events in a long time.
