Next month (June 2024), fans will witness the revival of one of the most legendary rivalries in mixed martial arts.


News recently broke that former UFC champion Anderson Silva will step into the boxing ring to rumble with longtime rival Chael Sonnen on June 15 in Brazil.

Silva, who will be fighting in his hometown of Sao Paulo, initially said this will be his final professional fight, but that's since been clarified to mean his final fight on Silva's home soil.

There is a colorful history between both fighters.

At UFC 117, Sonnen dominated Silva over the course of four rounds before Silva ultimately won with a sudden submission late in the fifth.

Their UFC 148 encounter was less competitive, with Silva needing just two rounds to put Sonnen away.

"We made Silva a massive favorite in the fight. Sonnen (47) is two years younger than Silva (49), but the latter has pro boxing experience," BetOnline revealed to Gambling911.com.

They posted the following odds, and they are lopsided.

Fight Odds

Anderson Silva  -500

Chael Sonnen    +325

Sonnen, in typical fashion, posted a video to his Instagram account.

"Oh Anderson, yoo-hoo. It's me again. See you June 15th."

This promises to be a heavily wagered on event.
