Thursday evening Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans sent a few tweets back and forth and it appears that the two FOX Sports 1 co-hosts are game for a dance in the Octagon on November 16th.

Less than two weeks after "The American Gangster" sunk in a round one guillotine on Shogun Rua at the first ever UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 1, he's back at it again.  

Yesterday during the UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2 postfight scrum, Dana White said he talked with Sonnen. 

"He wants to fight on that 20th anniversary card. He wants to co-main that (card). I'm working on it."

There was also mention in the scrum of Sonnen looking at Phil Davis as a possible opponent. This stemmed from an earlier callout from Davis:

Sonnen responded yesterday by saying that he didn't like Phil's tone. (It appears that tweet has since been taken down). Dana liked the idea and said it "could" happen, but turns out Sonnen had other plans. 

Here are Chael and Rashad previewing UFC 164 coming up on Saturday in Milwaukee.  Can you feel the tension?
