We reported moments ago that former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans had to bow out of his UFC 170 co-main event fight next weekend against Daniel Cormier. The UFC had pulled Cormier from the card as well as a replacement couldn’t be found on such short notice. Well so they thought.

Former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight title contender Chael Sonnen has volunteered his services to fight Cormier.

Cormier released a statement on Twitter stating he was sad and wants to fight.

Johnson responded on Twitter turning down the opportunity as he is facing Phil Davis at UFC 172 in April.

Sonnen whose is never one to be shy and turn down a challenge, accepted Cormier’s challenge.

Sonnen is currently scheduled to fight Wanderlei Silva at UFC 173 in May. The Oregon native is coaching The Ultimate Fighter Brazil opposite Silva and the filming of the show concludes on February 18.

No comment from the UFC yet as to whether they will make Cormier vs Sonnen.
