Both Sonnen and Silva are scheduled to meet in May at UFC 173 in Las Vegas. Sonnen mentioned on Twitter recently that he gets to decide where he faces “The Axe Murderer.” And “Sin City” is out of the question.
@wandfc Hey Stupid, I decide where we fight and your hometown, Las Vegas, is OUT. Stay tuned for details.
