FrontRowBrian says Anderson refuses to fight Chael in USA/Silva could be fired.

Brian ‏ @FrontRowBrian
Major story breaking in Atlanta. Anderson Silva has told Dana White he NOT fight Chael Sonnen unless it's in Brazil.

@FrontRowBrian
UFC147 presser in Rio on 4 Tues. Anderson will be present. Dana will announce date change to Vegas. Dana will fire AS if he declines fight

@FrontRowBrian
Should Anderson be fired, Sonnen v. @Bisping II is the back up plan for July 7 for the belt

@FrontRowBrian
Uncle Dana is beyond frustrated with Anderson. Let's see if he can convince Anderson to fight in Vegas. Dana playing hardball
For those of you who believe this is just my trolling Sonnen fan coming out or don't know who FRB is he's the guy who first reported the Diaz marijuana thing and the Overeem stuff, he's reported a few other things too but so far he's been money.

Dana firing AS? Not going to happen.

Kind of sucks that there are problems with fighting in Brazil though, almost like some force is trying to stop Anderson from fulfilling a part of his destiny. It seems fair for the two to fight in Anderson's home country after all the events that took place leading up to their first, and after their fight as well.

lol, Dana isn't going to fire AS. I'm sure there are problems and I'm certain Dana is dropping a few f-bombs, but firing one of your top three fighters? I don't see it.

I don't understand why Anderson wouldn't fight Chael outside Brazil, its not like UFC didn't try and make it happen.

I'm gonna wait until I see something from a more reliable source. As of right now that just looks like trolling to me.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Two unconfirmed stories from him so far. I don't see how that makes him money.

I could see it, Dana has fired whole teams on a whim before due to a fit of rage. Its usually Lorenzo bringing them back and setting things right after Dana wrongs them.

I could see why Anderson is really pushing for the Brazil fight. 80K in a soccer stadium in Brazil would have been insane. Dana should just look to do it 1 week later from the UN Convention or something. They should work harder to keep it in Brazil.
