Yes, it's coming! Just wait until Silva got all his ribs recovered, and UFC fans can have the rematch they've been waiting for. Mark the date because it's coming this New Year's eve or the next Super Bowl weekend. Just wait and see.

LA Times’ Lance Pugmire posted on his Twitter today that a middleweight title rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen is slated for this coming winter. The rematch will take place either the next New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl weekend card, depending on Silva’s recovery from an injured rib. Compare to other immediate UFC title rematch, Silva and Sonnen’s first meeting didn’t end up with a judges’ decision. Rather, Silva beats his opponent with a triangle-armbar, two minutes before the final bell. But no matter who got the next shot for the title, it still seems that Sonnen is a big threat for Silva. And definitely, the big chunk in the throat deserves another shot. Can Sonnen got something new from his previous fight, or will Silva run straight to him this time? How does a title rematch sounds for you?

Silva Sets His 12th UFC Victory

The match most anticipated by the UFC fans came to its ends, with Silva still the title holder. But Sonnen definitely made himself the star of the night with his persistent punches to get the the belt. In way or another, he is the best even if Silva is the champion. Nevertheless, Anderson Silva is the only record-holder of a 12 straight victory since 2006.

Only 110 seconds is left for Silva to surrender his title to Sonnen, but the champ managed to pull off one of his stunning end moves in the UFC 117 main event at the Oracle Arena. After four rounds of pounding from Chael Sonnen, a well-beaten Anderson Silva caged the trash-talker in a triangle choke. Sonnen made the tap at 3:10 on the fifth round, but denied his submission to referee Josh Rosenthal.

Sonnen extremely beats Silva on each round, apparently bringing Rosenthal on the verge of stopping the match. On the fifth round, Silva came out aggressively to end the fight but his opponent took him down again. After a couple of blows received from Sonnen, Silva slipped on the triangle. It’s obvious that one of Sonnen’s biggest problems is the submission defense. However, he made himself a superstar with his trash-talking and brave performance.

This Saturday, UFC 117: "Silva vs. Sonnen" will air live on a pay-per-view from Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Brace yourself for an exhibition as Anderson Silva defends his title against the verbally harsh Chael Sonnen.

After months of delusional and ignorant rants of Chael Sonnen, it’s time to see if he can actually back up his verbal assault with a physical one against Anderson Silva. Sonnen can take any middleweight down, while Silva’s defensive wrestling is indestructible. From Dan Henderson to Nate Marquardt, they manage to get Silva on the floor but lost, because they can’t take advance position. Sonnen has been submitted from the guard many times before, simply because guard-passing has never been a part of his tool belt.
