Chael Sonnen-Phil Davis In The Works For UFC 167

Chael Sonnen will not be facing Wanderlei Silva in his next fight – unless he wants to wait until 2014.

UFC president Dana White confirmed following UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2 Wednesday night that Silva is sidelined until January.

Sonnen, coming off a win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, has stated his desire to fight once more this year.

So, who could Sonnen be matched up with? Phil Davis, according to White.

“We talked a little bit (Wednesday),” White said. “He wants to fight on that 20th anniversary card. I’m working on it. That fight (vs. Davis) could happen.”

Davis is coming off a win over Lyoto Machida. The card White is referring to is UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks in November.
