UFC president Dana White, UFC middleweight champion and No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen were all on hand to confirm a change in the planned fight. Silva and Sonnen were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 147 in Brazil, but that has been changed to UFC 148 and Las Vegas.
White stated many problems caused the change in venue, including a planned United Nations press conference the same week of UFC 147. The card will still happen in Brazil, with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo expected to be added to it.
Check out the video below for the complete press conference, which, as you might guess, features some classic lines courtesy of Sonnen. Things get started around the five-minute mark.
