According to Chael Sonnen himself, the former UFC title contender will meet Josh Barnett at a fall Metamoris event.
Sonnen, appearing on Submission Radio recently, confirmed news of the fight.
“I have a match coming up at the very end of October, might even be November 1, I have to look,” he said. “His name is Josh Barnett.”
Sonnen and Barnett have both previously competed for the grappling promotion. Barnett is set to face Roy Nelson later this month inside the Octagon.
As for how it’s going to go between Sonnen and Barnett, the brash fighter had a bold prediction.
“I’m going to take his fat ass down and he will never get up,” Sonnen said. “And let him know I said that. I’m going to take Josh down and then I’m going to whisper in his ear, ‘welcome to the next 20 minutes of your life.'”
