Chael Sonnen’s return to the land of the living has turned out okay. After a drug-induced exile, he showed up at Bellator’s ivory gates with a willingness to fight anyone and run his mouth twice as hard, and though he came up short against fellow faded star Tito Ortiz, at Bellator NYC last night he smooshed Wanderlei Silva into the canvas and made it somewhat exciting.
So, now the big question: Who should he fight next?
When Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting stuck a microphone in his face after the fight, Sonnen was quick to drop Rory MacDonald’s name, which… isn’t Sonnen a little too big for him?
But Sonnen is the ultimate opportunist, so at the post-event press conference, he was all about that match-up with Fedor Emelianenko.
Who do you think Sonnen should fight?
