Ed Soares says Silva vs. Sonnen II is signed to June 23 in Rio

Quote:
The anticipated rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, for the UFC middleweight title, is set for June 23 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, shut down the rumors of the potential move of the fight to Las Vegas in a July 7th show.

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

During UFC on Fuel TV’s post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White talked about the possibility of moving the show to June 30 due to Rio+20, but Ed Soares says they weren’t contacted about this possibility yet.

Really?

I could have swore 10s of 10s of Sonnen fans on here were convinced that Silva was ducking Sonnen? They all believed Chael when he said "this fight will never happen".

I guess that was all hot air.

I think you're full of hot air, and those statements were made by one person.

And as we all know, nothing Lyoto Legion says even remotely merits consideration.
