If Chael Sonnen gets by Mark Munoz later this month at UFC on FOX 2, his next bout could be a huge one.

UFC president Dana White recently joined "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV to discuss potential plans for a long-awaited rematch.

In the segment, which ultimately didn't make it to air, White said that if Sonnen gets his rematch with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, it'll likely take place in Silva's home country of Brazil – in a soccer stadium.

That means the fight could headline the UFC's second-ever stadium show (the first, UFC 129, took place this past April in Toronto) and its first-ever outdoor event. UFC officials previously have talked about using a Brazilian venue that could accommodate up to 100,000 spectators for a future event...

Holy crap that'd make so much money.

I feel sorry for any of those fans sitting far away though.

If it wasn't pointed out, I'd still think it was Rabi.
