Apparently Wanderlei Silva hasn’t yet agreed to fight Chael Sonnen despite the former middleweight and light-heavyweight title contender calling him out during a recent edition of ‘UFC Tonight’.
That’s lead to Sonnen now offering what appears to be an ultimatum to ‘The Axe-Murderer’ via Twitter.
“Wand- you have 24 hours to accept. If you do, I will donate 10% of my purse to help schools in your hometown of Curitiba .. I mean, VEGAS,” Sonnen wrote.
It’s not clear whether Sonnen intends to set his sights elsewhere if Silva doesn’t respond, but in all honesty, unless he’s injured I can’t see the Brazilian turning down this fight.
It’s also a match-up that appears to appeal to the UFC brass as there’s been rumors that they see it as a key piece in the puzzle for their FOX Sports 1 debut event in August.
