Chael Sonnen likes to play mind games with MMA fans, reporters and even fighters. So, it’s of no surprise the former contender appears to be doing that once again.
Since a loss to Jon Jones last month for the UFC light heavyweight title, Sonnen has been calling out Wanderlei Silva for a fight.
This past weekend, however, Sonnen made it sound as if he is over fighting Silva and has moved on. “The Axe Murderer” recently declined to say anything about a fight, only remarking that no contract has been offered to him at that time.
“At some point, my skills will diminish and my athletic abilities will go down,” Sonnen said on FUEL TV. “And when they do, I’ll either join the NFL or fight Wanderlei Silva. But at this point, I’m looking ahead and I don’t know what’s next.”
Reports have stated that Sonnen-Silva could be a featured fight on the August debut card for FOX Sports 1.
