Sonnen - Silva & Weidman - Belfort To Be On The Same Card In May Or July

Dana White gave out some news as usual, he talked about the fight between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva to be on the same card as Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort. Check it out below:

“That’s never happened,” White said. “I mean, if you look at all the guys that we’ve had in there who’ve gotten in each other’s faces and done what they’ve done, it’s never come to a real fight.

“They were getting ready to do the weigh-ins. There was like six cameras in there. We don’t have to [air] it, but we’ll see what happens when we go to the editing room. It’s crazy.”

White confirmed that individuals on-set were punished for their role in the fight, however the names were not said. No surprise.

Dana said “without a doubt, the worst thing that’s ever happened on The Ultimate Fighter.”

With that being said, it’s supposed to take place according to UFC President: “It’s May or July,” White said. “I think it’s going to be May, which means it will be July now that I said that. I don’t know. One of them.”

Most likely it will be UFC 175 on July 5, 2014.

Rumblings are that Chris Weidman takes on Vitor Belfort for the middleweight title and then Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva are expected to “get it on” at the summer card.

If this is going to be the case then that will be a really good card. Two important fights that not only has a title fight, but also a rivalry fight.
