Today the UFC announced that The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3: Team Wanderlei vs Team Sonnen will air exclusively on UFC Fight Pass beginning March 9th at 10/7 ET/PT.  The show has already begun filming and bitter rivals, Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva, are coaching opposite one another leading up to their eventual fight.

The show will feature the best Middleweight and Heavyweight prospects Brazil has to offer. This is the first time a TUF season will be featuring Heavyweights since TUF 10 which featured Roy Nelson, Kimbo Slice, Brendan Schaub, and Matt Mitrione.

In addition to TUF Brazil 3, UFC Fight Pass will also be the exclusive home for a new segment called ‘six weeks with Sonnen’. The segment will be hosted by Chael Sonnen, taking Fight Pass subscribers behind the scenes of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3. In the video below, watch a sneak peak of the new segment with Sonnen.

Dana White has already confirmed that the show’s filming has been intense from the get go. Both Sonnen and Wanderlei do not like each other, and that could lead to an epic season. In the end, it will truly be about the talent pool of fighters in the season that will make it great.

Topics: Brendan Schaub, Chael Sonnen, Dana White, Matt Mitrione, Roy Nelson, TUF Brazil 3, UFC, Wanderlei Silva
