Chael Sonnen will get his shot at champion Anderson Silva on Aug. 7 at UFC 117 in Oakland, Calif.

The mercurial middleweight confirmed the upcoming bout at a UFC Fight Club Q&A session on Friday, though he did say one condition existed for the fight.

Sonnen is in for the contest, but he's giving the champion a chance to back out.

"That is true on one condition: if diplomacy fails," Sonnen said. "I am giving Anderson Silva the fair chance to back out. But as sure as night follows day, if he does not heed my warning, I will declare war, and on Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. his 15 minutes of fame will come to an abrupt halt."

greatest quote ever.
this guy's alright

I hope Sonnen throws him down, keeps him down and beats him down. I hope Silva's luck finally runs out.

I wish Sonnen had a facebook so I could "like" that comment. That is frickin' hilarious.

He has as good a shot as any. All that I care about is there's going to be some priceless trashtalking on the Countdown special before this fight. I'll probably record that and make a drinking game for it.

Some one will beat him it's gonna happen. I say why not Sonnen i've always thought it would be someone we wouldn't expect. I would of picked someone else before Chael
