Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans may have shared the Fox Sports 1 analyst desk Wednesday at UFC Fight Night 26, but that doesn’t mean they’re buddies. Late Thursday night, Sonnen took to Twitter to see if he could get some “Suga” at UFC 167. “Hey Rashad, let me ask you a question… You busy Nov 16th?” Sonnen inquired. Evans responded by acting as though he didn’t know what Sonnen was implying, “Nah not really!! What’s up?” Sonnen promptly fired back, leaving no doubt what his intentions are. “Ill give you one hint…,” Sonnen wrote accompanied by the unofficial UFC 167 poster above. “that looks like a good idea to me! I knew you had something you really wanted to say to me yesterday on the show!” Evans countered. Uncle Chael had been hellbent on co-headlining UFC 167 opposite Wanderlei Silva. However, UFC president Dana White revealed this week Silva will be sidelined until at least January with a back injury. As MMA fans know full well, the Chael P. show waits for no man. Sonnen has promptly turned his attention toward Evans, and it appears the light heavyweights are now simply waiting on the UFC’s approval. If this scrap comes to fruition, can you imagine the pre-fight smack talk between the two? UFC 167 takes place November 16 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Contrary to what Sonnen’s billboard suggests, the welterweight shootout between champion Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks actually headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.
