Jon Jones injured, out indefinitely, Chael Sonnen will now fight Anderson Silva for the UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 159.
Anderson Silva is one more win away from the biggest super fight in Mixed Martial Arts history. All Silva (33-4) has to do is beat his rival, Chael Sonnen (27-12-1) one more time. If Silva can accomplish what he has done twice already he will hold two UFC Championships in two different weight classes. If he can do that a Championship Unification fight with Jon Jones (17-1) is inevitable.

Yeah same here. I also don't think it would make sense. Why would Silva have to fight Sonnen a third time? Until I see it on the ufc web page or something, I will remain skeptical. I'm thinking this must be an april fool's joke. If so, well played Rabi. Had me going for a moment.

Yeah, had me going for about .75 of a second before my eyes reached the tags. Last year we had the "Official SUPERFIGHT announcement" which I did, truthfully & gullibly believe...then upon the realization of my stupidity, found to be quite awesome...so I have been waiting with anticipation for this year's 'BIG ONE' where I could be 'in on it' & laugh at the posts rolling in from the 'true believers.'

INSTEAD...the faux-holiday of April Fool's on MMAPLAYGROUND was just now ruined by an impatient & half-assed attempt of a post :(
-TOO EARLY (just so you could be the first)
-ACTUALLY TAGS POST WITH "APRIL FOOLS" (SO NO ONE WOULD GET MAD)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! YOU ARE THE FIRST!!!! ......& now it's all ruined.

Must be an April Fool's joke. Obviously, nothing can injure Jones

Yeah I think this is a joke as well. I saw about a month ago somethin sayin this sports trivia game (that I play on yahoo) will be cancelled after March 31st. I never realized it until I noticed it was being cancelled on April Fools but they still made me think for a month that my game was gonna be cancelled lol

I think I was the only drunk guy who read this headline, because I was like, "Holly hell batman this is crazy!" but then all of you helped me to realize it was just a terrible april fools joke. Now when Jones blows an acl we'll all feel like jerks.

I've got the funniest suspicion that this article is correlated with today's date but feel relief knowing everything written on the intraweb must be true.

So with that said, WHY ANDY TITLE FIGHT AT 205 ANDY NOT 205 DANA WHITE IS JERK CHAEL DOESN'T DESERVE FIGHT
