Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva have developed quite the rivalry over the last few years. What began as Wanderlei being upset about Chael’s trash talk towards Brazil has developed into a full fledged rivalry. The two have almost come to blows on multiple separate occasions. The rivalry has culminated into the two men coaching opposite one another on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3. The show, which is currently taping, will air exclusively on Fight Pass and is certainly one of the most hyped seasons in some time.

Today, the first staredown photo between Chael and Wanderlei was released for fans to salivate over.

Chael also tweeted this out earlier today regarding TUF Brazil 3:

Clearly tensions are already high on the set of TUF Brazil 3. The two men will meet after the show’s completion in what is certain to be a highly volatile fight. Both men do not like each other, and the bad blood will likely boil over during the season. The show is set to air sometime in Spring 2014. There is currently no word as to when Chael and Wanderlei will fight.
