Chael Sonnen is open to fighting both Fedor Emelianenko and Rory MacDonald sometime in the future.
At 40 years of age, Chael Sonnen does not see himself slowing down any time soon. Currently signed with Bellator, the former UFC title contender last saw action in June by defeating Wanderlei Silva via unanimous decision in New York City.
Chael Sonnen seems unclear of just why Chuck Liddell is talking about him as an easy fight, since Liddell has apparently already turned down the opportunity.

And while there hasn’t been much definitive news on a return to the cage for the former UFC champion since, the statement from Liddell was apparently enough to inspire Chael Sonnen.
For Chael Sonnen, Jon Jones is seemingly confident that he would be cleared in time to fight at UFC 230, the company’s NYC card this November.
Even while on indefinite suspension, Jon Jones and his team have managed to keep themselves relevant enough.

Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman has been out of action for more than a year now. He has been kept in the sidelines by a thumb injury he sustained during his last fight against Kelvin Gastelum in July 2017.
Chris Weidman is not too satisfied with how things are at middleweight, and is considering the idea of moving up to light heavyweight.

In early July, it was announced that a third fight between UFC Hall-of-Famers Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will be taking place. All that was publicized was that it will be taking place sometime within the year under Golden Boy Promotions’ first venture into mixed martial arts.
MILWAUKEE – Next week’s UFC 203 card features a heavyweight title fight at the top of the bill in the champ’s home city.

Ever since signing with the UFC at the close of 2014, CM Punk has heard almost the entire roster of fighters voice their opinions on his decision to debut in the Octagon with no formal fight experience under his belt.
