Wanderlei Silva Wants Fight Against Chael Sonnen In Rio de Janeiro

UFC and PRIDE legend, Wanderlei Silva spoke this week about how he wants to face off against his rival, Chael Sonnen at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, so he can make the American pay in front of 110,000 Brazilian fans, as well as adding he’ll be looking for the fight to take place at 205 pounds.

Silva, speaking in a press release said:

“I want this fight to take place at Maracana. I want a crowd just like the 1950 World Cup final with 110,000 fans in there if possible. If they don’t sell out the place, I’ll buy all the tickets and hand them to the fans. I want him really strong, so he can survive more than a round against me. I want this fight at 205 pounds.”
