The long-awaited rematch between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen apparently now has a destination in Brazil.

While not officially set, UFC president Dana White today said he expects the fight to take place in Rio de Janeiro in a stadium that could accommodate 80,000 fans.

Initially, the pay-per-view event was expected to take place in Sao Paulo, though venue and local-ordinance issues recently popped up.

UFC 147 is expected to take place June 16 or June 23.

I know we all make jokes, but I honestly fear for Chael's life if he were to win.

WHEN Chael wins...rather easily mind you......the Brozillian faithful will hoist The Prodigal Son onto their shoulders and sing 'Simply the Best'.

When Andy loses, he will render doing Burger King Commercials while getting fatter by the day, proclaiming he had hurt ribs.

I'm sure the ufc understands the potential dangers for its fighter, Chael Sonnen, and will ensure his safety by hiring private securities to escort him in and out of Brazil.

I would like to be the first person to challenge you to an av bet on this fight.

More importantly, I would like to make the stakes high. How about 2 months?

Hahaha, once the cage door closes, the only life that everyone should have fear for is Andy's. Afterwards, the brahzillians will give Chael P. a standing ovation.

2 months is for Chumps like Andy who try to hand pick their fights.

3 months or no deal.

The Brazilians did not quite do that when Kimura defeated Helio Gracie. You can still find youtube videos of some Brazilian whining about how Helio Gracie did not lose that fight. It's preposterously funny because it was in-fact Helio Gracie who cheated and padded the mat to avoid being knocked out by Kimura's judo slams.

But all in all, justice was served when Kimura applied the legendary move which broke the arm of Brazilians' cheating fighter, Helio Gracie.

May I also add, the Brazilians staged a coffin with Kimura's name on it as a hospitality gesture to welcome the foreign fighter, Kimura.

These Brazilians - they are such great hosts aren't they?
