Wanderlei Silva is confident he will knock out Chael Sonnen, if UFC gives the green light to the fight.

Rumours have been circulating for some time that the UFC is planning to put the pair together in the Octagon, but there has been no official word.

Sonnen has taken to Twitter in a bid to get a fight with Silva and it now appears the Brazilian is ready to accept.

"I'm training right now and waiting," Silva told ESPN.com. "I have a guy asking 'are you going to accept a challenge?' Nobody has contacted me officially. The boss don't call me, so I'm waiting.

"The probability I knock out Chael Sonnen is very big. Man, everybody knows his game. He is never going to take me down and I'm going to break his nose with my knee."
