Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans might be playing matchmaker, as the two took to Twitter late Thursday night.
Sonnen, who has been pushing to face Wanderlei Silva, will not be able to do so due to “The Axe Murderer” being injured. UFC president Dana White recently stated they might pair him with Phil Davis, but Sonnen appears to have Evans on his mind.
“Hey Rashad, let me ask you a question….You busy Nov 16th?” Sonnen wrote on Twitter.
Evans, who worked the <em>UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2</em> card with Sonnen this past Wednesday, responded, “Nah not really!! What’s up?” Sonnen replied with a poster for UFC 167 featuring the two.
“That looks like a good idea to me!” Evans wrote. “I knew you had something you really wanted to say to me yesterday on the show!”
<em>UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks</em> is set for this fall from Las Vegas. It marks the 20th anniversary of the UFC.
