Dana White Confirms Anderson Silva Will Defend His Title Against Chael Sonnen

UFC President, Dana White has revealed that UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva will put his title on the line once again against the man who won four and a half rounds against him, Chael Sonnen.

White, speaking on Jim Rome’s radio show, said:

“It’s the fight that everybody wants to see, people want to see Chael vs. Anderson. Anderson is in this position where he feels like this guy is so disrespectful he doesn’t want to give him a shot, but Anderson will end up fighting Chael Sonnen. The answer is yes.”

There is no date set for the fight despite Sonnen’s attempt to make it happen on Super Bowl weekend. Silva is still suffering a number of injuries but could return to action as early as the first quarter of 2012.
