Though the UFC has announced the rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen for UFC 147 in Rio de Janeiro, Sonnen has not yet signed his fight contract for the bout.

In a comment made to MMAFighting.com, Sonnen gave a simple explanation as to why, but didn't expand on his reasoning.

"My demand has not been met," Sonnen said. "I've signed nothing."

His manager said it's essentially a formality at this point, but Sonnen said his demand is still to come, and he'll sign once that demand is made and met.

Penick's Analysis: There's not a chance that this is anything more than Chael being Chael. He may have some type of demand as another attempt to stir the pot, much like his challenge to Silva in the cage after defeating Brian Stann last October, but he'll sign on for the fight, and it will go through. This is just more posturing and him trying to rile people up. I'm sure we'll see what his "demand" is, if there is one, in the coming days, but I don't believe for a second that the fight is in danger.
