According to reports, the Chael Sonnen-Wanderlei Silva fight is being penciled in for UFC 175 on the Fourth of July weekend event from Las Vegas.
That card is slated to feature UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman defending his title against Vitor Belfort. It has yet to be confirmed – both the main event and actual fight card.
Sonnen and Silva are currently filming episodes of The Ultimate Fighter in Brazil. They recently got into an altercation, which led to UFC president Dana White coming down hard on the two rivals.
Since Sonnen moved into title contention in the middleweight division a few years back, Silva has been one of his biggest rivals. However, they have yet to hook up inside the Octagon for a variety of reasons.
The July 5 card should be announced soon, as the UFC recently confirmed several events throughout Canada this year.
