Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva are on a collision course towards their May 31st battle in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both men have a mutual disdain for one another, and coaching against each other on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil: Season 3 has added fuel to the fire.
Scheduling the fight has been a nightmare for the UFC, who had to deal with moving the fight to multiple different cards and Wanderlei supposedly refusing to sign the contract. Chael Sonnen is still convinced that Wanderlei will pull out of the fight with an ‘injury’ at some point.
The UFC has been holding on to this rivalry for quite some time, and along with TUF Brazil 3, the promotion for the bout is going to start kicking into high gear. Who better to promote the fight than Chael Sonnen himself? The answer is likely no one, as Chael has shown time and again that when he speaks, MMA fans listen, and when he fights, MMA fans will watch.
In the newest promotional bit, Paula Sack asks Chael some rapid fire questions related to TUF Brazil 3 and Wanderlei Silva. Watch the video in it’s entirety below:
