"I have invested all my time and I've gone through a lot to make this fight happen. This is all a big confusion," said Silva, in a video interview you can view above. "Everything I've heard, I heard it from the internet."
Silva continued, saying he was at his gym - like Sonnen claimed - when a member of the commission showed up with papers written in English.
"I told him that I can't read English very well and would need my lawyer present to be able to sign," he said. "Then I had to leave since it was the day of (Renan) Barao's fight and I was really busy in Las Vegas."
- It turns out everything Chael Sonnen said on UFC Tonight recently might not be true. Sonnen now faces Vitor Belfort this July at UFC 175, and stated the fight was for the No. 1 contendership in the UFC's middleweight division, despite the fight being contested at light heavyweight. While promoting UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs. Mousasi in Germany Friday, UFC president Dana White clarified what is at stake.
"I'm not saying he'll [Sonnen] get a title shot, but it will be big for him," White said, in an interview with Fighters Only. "The fight has been made at middleweight, though, so we'll see what happens."
That is another change, as Sonnen said the contest would be at light heavyweight. Chris Weidman defends his middleweight title against Lyoto Machida in the main event.
