Sonnen vs. Evans at UFC 167?

Thursday evening Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans sent a few tweets

back and forth and it appears that the two

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

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.
