Chael Sonnen has been forced out of his UFC bout in Brazil due to unforeseen circumstances. Instead of a replacement been sort the UFC Match-Maker Joe Silva had a better idea.

Instead of the UFC 145 been headlined by Light-Heavyweight Championship fight between Jon "Bones" Jones and "Suga" Rashad Evans. Evans now finds himself in a number 1 contender match with Dan Henderson. The UFC 147 fight will now be a UFC superfight between Jon "Bones" Jones and Anderson "The Spider" Silva for the UFC Light-Heavyweight Championship.

The ground breaking news came in from this LINK here

What really got me was it was in the news form.

Edit: Now that I read the full, title that gives it away.

Silva/Jones never going to happen as well as Silva/GSP never going to happen.

Well played Jay!! I started reading the title, half way through it, I brought up another tab to go look on mmajunkie, because we know if it's reported there than it is true, as I'm about to type mmajunkie into the address bar, I was like shit this is an April Fool's joke.

Lol, I did the same thing. Well done Jay.

Also, why take it down? It's April Fool's Day. Why not have some fun with it for the day?

Since I bit, I planned on leaving it up for awhile so others have to suffer as well. It's just a joke, so I don't have a problem with it being up. If there are others out there that don't like it being up PM me and I'll take it from there. Just don't start flaming each other in here, remember it's just a joke and that not everyone finds every joke funny.

Sad thing is I was looking forward more to Jones/Silva or Jones/Hendo than the actual matchups in reality. Rashad needs to just get knocked out by Machida again so his padded record can finally be exposed again.

padded? you have got to be shitting me. Besides Tito, who was a last minute replacement, the last guy he fought who wasn't a top 10 was Bisping. How in the hell is that padded?

He knows what you're referring to.

He's disagreeing with you.

Rashad's record is not padded.

I think he is referring too that Evans record is 17-1-1, but the UFC has it at 22-1-1, they have done this to other fighters as well.

Im guessing thats what Cooler is speaking of
