UFC: Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva: 5 Reasons This Fight Must Happen in 2012

While UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is on the mend, both Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen will meet next Saturday at UFC on FOX 2, where the two will vie for No. 1 contender status.

Bisping would be a new face to throw into the 185-pound title picture, though a Silva-Sonnen battle just has a better ring to it.

Both men have faced each other before, with the Team Quest product nearly cinching a dominant decision win over the Brazilian; that is, before the jiu-jitsu black belt locked in a fight ending triangle-armbar in the waning moments of the fight.

Should Sonnen get past the Brit, he will be next in line for the champion, creating a highly-anticipated rematch of epic proportions.
