At UFC 148, in one of the most anticipated fights in MMA history, Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen will go head-to-head in a grudge match for the ages. However, come fight night, only one of the aforesaid combatants should have the fanzines' full support—“The Spider.”
Since the self-proclaimed “American Gangster” inflicted a five-round shellacking of the reigning middleweight titlist, a rematch has been in the works. Hell, a rematch has been inevitable.
That fateful night at UFC 117, Sonnen almost usurped the crown from the perennial champion, but as fate would have it, he succumbed to a triangle armbar in the dying minutes of the final frame.
Las Vegas, Nev. (Rome) will be the setting and the Octagon (Coliseum) is where the drama will play out.
Vae victo (Sonnen).
