Breaking News:  Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva named coaches for TUF Brazil

UFC President Dana White announced just hours ago on “Fox Sports Live” that MMA rivals Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will coach opposite one another on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3.

Exact quote:

“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: Brazil…. 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.”

This will probably be one of the most entertaining TUF seasons yet as it is no secret that these two absolutely hate each other.

TUF: “Brazil 3” will feature some blend of Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and/or Heavyweight MMA hopefuls, with filming expected to begin in the New Year.
