LA Times investigative Boxing/MMA reporter Lance Pugmire tweeted last night that the UFC will be having a Silva vs Sonnen 2 as soon as possible, depending on Silva’s rib injury. Here is what the tweet had to say.
“UFC will stage Anderson Silva-Chael Sonnen rematch on New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl card, depending on Silva’s hurt ribs. #UFC, #MMA”
Does the LA Times have an accurate inside source, or is this just speculation? Pugmire has also just responded to Sports Illustrated MMA writer, Josh Gross saying that “Fertitta’s (UFC owner) saying Silva’s rib is only bruised, not broken. May still require till Feb. to heal though. ”
