While Chael Sonnen continued his push for a match with Wanderlei Silva Saturday night, he received a call-out from another Brazilian.
Vitor Belfort, the former UFC champion, took to Twitter just moments after Sonnen’s submission win vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Rua.
“(Sonnen) let’s fight,” he wrote. “Why u are asking for wand, u have to fight me. Let’s do it (Dana White, Lorenzo Fertitta).”
The UFC has been trying to book Belfort for a match, but he turned down a bout with Tim Kennedy. He was rumored to be taking on Lyoto Machida, but reports earlier this week have Machida facing Nick Diaz.
