While the fight between Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen still hasn't even been offered to either fighter by the UFC, everyone seems on board for the showdown to finally happen.

Silva and Sonnen are no fans of each other, and their war of words has spread across social media, interviews and even made its way to UFC Tonight on Tuesday.

In an exclusive interview with Bleacher Report on Wednesday, Silva's longtime coach and close friend Master Rafael Cordeiro gave his opinion on the potential fight.

"If he fights Chael Sonnen, the fight don't (get) past the first round," Cordeiro stated.  "He's going to knock him out for sure."

Cordeiro also talks about Silva's recent performance in a victory over Brian Stann and why those kinds of fights are the reason why the Brazilian legend isn't ready to call it a career just yet.
