In the two weeks since Chael Sonnen beat Brian Stann at UFC 136 two weeks ago and challenged UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva to a rematch on Super Bowl weekend, Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, has said Sonnen doesn’t deserve a rematch and that Silva only plans to fight four more times.
However, those may not be the plans of the champion himself, who recently said he should be the only talking about his career.
“Only I can talk about my fights, my plans and my career,” Silva recently Tweeted (via Tatame). “I’m not on physical therapy and one I define my next fight with the UFC I will let you know.”
Meanwhile, Sonnen continued his campaign for the Feb. 4 rematch in a recent appearance on ESPN’s Jim Rome Show, but said the stipulation that he would leave the UFC if he loses again to Silva is now off the table.
