After calling out “The Spider” after his recent victory over Brian Stann, Chael Sonnen will indeed get another shot at the middleweight champion Anderson Silva.  During an interview with Jim Rome, UFC president Dana White was asked about the potential fight and White confirmed that it will take place.

Despite Sonnen challenging Silva to compete at the UFC card that will be hosted during Super Bowl weekend, there is no official date set for the fight.

Lesnar vs. Overeem winner to be declared No. 1 contender

As it had been previously speculated, it was announced today that the winner of the fight between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 will officially become the No. 1 contender for the winner of this Saturday’s heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.

Lesnar will be stepping into the Octagon for the first time since losing his title to Velasquez at UFC 121 in October of last year.  He was scheduled to fight dos Santos in a No. 1 contender fight at UFC 131, however he had to withdraw from that fight after a second bout of diverticulitis sidelined him from competition.  Now healthy, he will look to battle the former Strikeforce and Dream heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, who is looking to join Nick Diaz in the club of fighters who have come from Strikeforce and will go on to fight for UFC gold.

UFC 141 is set to take place on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas.

Mulhern vs. Hulett added to Strikeforce Challengers 20

The Nov. 18 Strikeforce card got a new fight today when it was announced that welterweights Quinn Mulhern and David Hulett would square off at Strikeforce Challengers 20.  Mulhern holds a 1-1 record with the promotion and is recently coming off a submission victory against Danny Davis, while Hulett will be making his Strikeforce debut after coming off two consecutive submission victories of his own while fighting in minor promotions.
