It looks like UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (31-4 MMA, 14-0 UFC) may not get to enjoy home-field advantage after all.

UFC president Dana White revealed continued logistical problems, which may force the rescheduling of UFC 147 in Brazil, might also mean Silva's long-awaited rematch with top contender Chael Sonnen (27-11-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) will instead take place in North America.

"Yeah, there's stuff going on down there in Brazil, and I'm working on it," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following Saturday's UFC 145 event at Atlanta's Philips Arena. "We're working on it still at this minute."

Silva vs. Sonnen II was originally expected to headline UFC 147 on June 23 at Rio de Janeiro's Joao Havelange Stadium. However, White recently revealed the company was considering a different date due to the United Nations' "Rio +20" meeting, which is scheduled for June 20-22 in Rio de Janeiro.
