Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva’s bitter feud is coming to it’s apex. With news that the fight will headline a Fox Sports 1 show in Brazil on May 31, the Sonnen hype machine is about to move into overdrive. Last night on Fox Sports Live, Chael Sonnen stopped by to give a little message to Wanderlei Silva. Watch the clip in the video above.
Both men are coaching against each other on the third season of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil. The show will begin airing exclusively on UFC Fight Pass in March. Dana White has already said multiple times that this season has some of the most tense moments between coaches that we have ever seen on the Ultimate Fighter. In fact, Sonnen and Wanderlei actually got into a brawl on set, but it was quickly separated. There is still no word as to whether the brawl was caught on camera or will be included in the show.
A lot of the UFC’s ‘bad blood’ type fights are fabricated to sell tickets and hype fights. When it comes to Chael Sonnen, most of what he says is fabricated and set up to strike a nerve with the UFC audience. This fight however, is as real as it can get. Both men sincerely despise one another and will settle their dispute inside the Octagon on May 31st in Brazil.
