Rumors of a rematch between current middleweight champion of the UFC Anderson Silva and his nemesis Chael Sonnen have been swirling ever since Sonnen’s victory over Brian Stann at UFC 136.

Just after UFC 137 this Saturday, GRACIEMAG reporter Nalty Jr. heard from a reliable source that, yes, it will happen.

In a recent interview on Brazilian TV show anchored by journalist Marilia Gabriela, Silva said he has no reason to offer Chael a rematch. However, ever since Brazilian TV network Globo – the biggest in the country – won its bid to broadcast the UFC and another installment of the event was confirmed for January 14 in Rio, a lot has been going on behind the scenes and pressure for the rematch to take place has been great.
