Chael Sonnen has intensified the push for a future meeting with Wanderlei Silva, as the former No. 1 contender issued a deadline to “The Axe Murderer” via Twitter.
“Wand – you have 24 hours to accept,” Sonnen posted. “If you do, I will donate 10% of my purse to help schools in your hometown of Curitiba .. I mean, VEGAS.”
Sonnen (27-13-1) has continually referred to Silva as turning back on his country by living and training in the U.S. He has also stated that the former PRIDE champion is “broke” and needs this fight.
We’ve yet to hear any response from Silva.
