Chael Sonnen is applying to referee Weidman vs. SIlva II (Video)

Chael Sonnen is getting so good at his vocal trolling that it’s hard to tell when he’s sincere or just “entertaining.” Either he’s the modern day Marlon Brando or more likely, he’s telling the truth. Of course Sonnen admits that the likelihood of him earning a headline bout in his premiere is next to nil.

Besides that intriguing development, Ariel Helwani also learns for us that Chael has just signed a new contract (how many fights?) and he will stick around and honor it.

You can catch Sonnen this Saturday in the headline bout against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC on FS 1 (currently the Speed Channel).
