Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen will settle the score inside the octagon after their stint as coaches of TUF Brazil 3
Bitter rivals Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva are finally booked for an official MMA match. But before that, they will have to serve as coaches in the third season of TUF Brazil.
Dana White made the announcement on the Monday edition of Fox Sports Live:
UFC stars Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva have made no secret of wanting to fight one another, and now it seems that will happen — but only if they make it through a season of working together as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brasil…. Sonnen, no stranger to picking fights against Brazilians, has waged a campaign to fight “The Axe Murderer,” writing him a series of poems and using his victory interview at UFC Fight Night in Boston to call him out. The two also had to be separated when they came face-to-face at an expo last month.”
The announcement points out to the Mr. Olympia expo last month. It that incident, Silva confronts the unsuspecting Sonnen with his own crew filming the action on his back. The two traded verbal slurs and they nearly went at it before being separated by the crowd. Sonnen, would later fire back at Silva in the organization’s weekly news and information show, UFC Tonight.
As with the tradition of TUF, the coaches will face each other after the finale of the series. Both fighters have served as coaches before. Silva was the head coach in the first Brazilian edition of the reality series while Sonnen had his stint in the seventeenth season of TUF.
