Chael Sonnen knows many people don’t believe a match with Wanderlei Silva makes any sense for the former contender right now.
However, Sonnen begs to differ. Coming off a recent loss to Jon Jones, Sonnen offered up his take on why facing “The Axe Murderer” makes sense on Twitter recently.
“2 reasons the fight makes sense: I want an easy fight; Wanderlei is broke,” Sonnen wrote.
Silva, a former PRIDE champion, is coming off a win over Brian Stann. Rumors that the two could be headed for the FOX Sports 1 debut card in August continue to be floated around, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
