Chael Sonnen Tells Wanderlei Silva: “Wand You Have 24 Hours to Accept”

Chael Sonnen has this week continued to heckle former PRIDE champion and Brazilian MMA legend, Wanderlei Silva in the hopes of securing a grudge match between the two later this year, this time using the social networking platform of Twitter to deliver his message to “The Axe Murderer”.

Sonnen, via his Twitter page, said:

“Wand- you have 24 hours to accept. If you do, I will donate 10% of my purse to help schools in your hometown of Curitiba .. I mean, VEGAS.”

Sonnen, coming off several title defeats, one at middleweight to Anderson Silva and the other to light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones. He previously defeated the likes of Brian Stann and Michael Bisping at 185 lbs.

Silva went 3-2 in his last five fights inside the octagon, defeating Michael Bisping, Cung Le and Brian Stann, whilst losing to Chris Leben and Rich Franklin. His last win, over Stann, was his return to the light heavyweight division.
