Anderson Silva has his next opponent.

On Wednesday, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the UFC’s reigning middleweight champion will indeed face heated rival Chael Sonnen in a rematch of their 2010 fight at UFC 117.

During an appearance on Jim Rome’s nationally syndicated radio show, White was asked point blank if Sonnen would indeed get the rematch he’s been seeking for months.

“It’s the fight that everybody wants to see, people want to see Chael vs. Anderson. Anderson is in this position where he feels like this guy is so disrespectful he doesn’t want to give him a shot, but Anderson will end up fighting Chael Sonnen,” White confirmed.

“The answer is yes.”

That puts any debate to rest about who will get the next crack at Anderson Silva, once he’s healthy enough to return to action...

I wonder if Sonnen will still put his career on the line.

Well this should be a no brainer. If this fight doesn't happen, everyone involved loses big time. We'll always wonder if Andy could beat Sonnen again (which he will), or if Chael could send Andy to light heavyweight. Also, the UFC would lose out on a huge ppv buy

I don't see a rematch looking anything like the first fight. Anderson will do a triumphant turkey trott all all over Chael's face.

To me this doesn't make sense. Why did the UFC wait until a random Wednesday to announce this? Why not right after Chael won? The only immediate alternative was munoz if he won, which he did. Also that Hendo Shogun fight hasn't happened either, why not just wait for that as well? Maybe Rome just has a way with people with that tasteful goatee...

I thought he vacated that belt when he tapped out after registering 4 times human testosterone.

THIS. Plus I think this time around Anderson finished it quick by either a sub or KO. I'm hoping he finishes it with another triangle choke
