Silva-Sonnen date may be changed



Dana White tonight after the show in Stockholm for the first time talked about the proposed 6/23 in Rio de Janeiro being in jeopardy.

The show has been in trouble for at least a week, stemming from a United Nations meeting in the city that would cause problems in getting hotels.  Moving it out of the country was at least broached, but White said the event would still take place at Joao Havelange Stadium, but he didn't know the date yet.

In addition, White said that the mayor is under pressure not to have the UFC in town that week when so many world leaders would be in town.

White said they were looking at doing the show a week before, or a week after at this point.
