Report: Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen Possible for Rio in Brazil

After dominating the world's greatest fighter in Anderson Silva for nearly four and a half rounds, Chael Sonnen found himself trapped in a Triangle Armbar with just under two minutes remaining in the fifth and final round.

Sonnen would eventually tap, which led to arguably the greatest comeback in UFC history.

Following his loss, Sonnen made it known to the entire world that he would someday get his rematch and defeat Silva.

In fact, Sonnen's done everything he could possibly do to provoke SIlva towards the highly anticipated rematch.

Unfortunately for Sonnen, Silva doesn't feel feel he deserves it.

However, it's not Silva who calls the shots, but UFC President Dana White.

And, after a spectacular fight card in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in August of 2011, the UFC has agreed to make it's way back to the home country of Silva on Jan. 14, 2012.

According to recent news released by Graciemag the greatest rematch in the history of the business could very well take place when the UFC returns to Brazil in early 2012.

This could come as good or bad news to the UFC's most outspoken man.

Sonnen has displayed an overwhelming desire to square off with the current Middleweight champ once more, but it might not be the place he had in mind.

On more than one occasion, Sonnen has bashed the country of Brazil, specifically through his Twitter.

In one Tweet, Sonnen stated,

"Yushin and I go back to civilzation tomorrow. Thanks for everything, Brazil. It was like camping in Compton."

Could it be... Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil?
