He doesn't know who he'll fight yet...
Chael Sonnen recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his next fight and more. Sonnen didn't answer any questions about Wanderlei Silva and instead said he doesn't have an opponent right now. Check out the highlights:
On what's next for him: "I'll need some fights to happen in the middleweight division (and) fights in the light-heavyweight division. But as it stands right now, there's no opponent."
On some potential fights for him: "I know (Antonio Rogerio) 'Lil Nog' (Nogueira) is going to fight with 'Shogun,' so he's off the table, and the real side of it, too, is that I just got done. I just got out of the ring exactly one week ago, so I started back for practice today. It was my first time breaking a sweat, and from here on, I'm back at it. But I don't have any opponent. I'd really like to be part of the 20th anniversary show. I'm really looking to be part of the St-Pierre (vs.) Hendricks card."
On his plan for the year: "I'll fight one more time this year. That puts me between the St-Pierre card or the Chris Weidman card. So I would like to be part of the 20th anniversary show. But one of those two dates match up well."
