In 12 days time, Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen will finally attempt to settle their differences in the cage.
The veteran fighters and former UFC stars are booked to battle at Bellator “NYC”, which will take place on June 24th at Madison Square Garden. If you’ve been a fan of MMA for a little while now, then you know the two have a beef that goes back several years.
In fact, the two were supposed to fight under the UFC banner back in 2014, but Silva ran into issues with the NSAC, and the bout never happened.
In advance of Bellator “NYC”, the promotion has posted the video below, which features both Silva and Sonnen discussing the roots of their rivalry.
