Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva were supposed to fight in the UFC. In fact, they were given coach slots for a season of TUF, and they were treated to all the bells and whistles the UFC hype machine has to offer. But the whole thing went to hell when Silva ducked out of an unannounced drug test, and Sonnen, well, he got suspended for like 50 years when he tested positive for every performance enhancer under the sun.

But lo and behold, Bellator needed a ready-made freakshow match for the New York City debut, so Sonnen and Silva get top honors as the main event of the pay-per-view.

And guess what? Here we are, the day before the event, and it looks like Sonnen and Silva are actually going to fight. Color me shocked! Because I though for sure one, or both, would bail before it got to this point.

Bellator – so full of surprises!
