Where you at, Ralek?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight Wanderlei Silva, who coached alongside bitter rival Chael Sonnen on season three of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil," still wants to settle their score after years of public quarreling.

It could be awhile.

Sonnen -- who insists he's retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) -- is currently serving a two-year suspension handed down by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for a pair of failed drug tests. In addition, Silva has yet to answer for his own troubles with the commission after dodging a surprise test earlier this year.

But if they can't do it as MMA fighters, then how about as grapplers? Wandy talks to Submission Radio:

"I think him and Belfort are just the two good fights that have a reason to happen for me. This is bad for everyone, bad for him, bad for me, bad for the fans who want so much that fight. But I'm gonna (be) waiting for him. He (Chael Sonnen) has just one way to fight, just take down then on the top of the ground. And for me, I try to knock out, you know. I like to fight (in the) stand up and that what was happen. I'm gonna try to knock him out, he would try and hold me the whole round. Yeah [I'll fight him in Metamoris], why not? I never think about that but I think it's a good idea."

Stranger things have happened.

Sonnen, 37, is already booked to test his might against jiu-jitsu wizard Andre Galvao at the upcoming Metamoris 4 grappling tournament on Aug. 9 in Los Angeles, California (more on that here). Silva, meanwhile, is still under contract to UFC but cannot bok a fight until his disciplinary hearing with NSAC.

Until then, who's interested to see these two roll?
