Since filming wrapped for season four of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3, the UFC has been teasing a huge brawl between coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva. The two men entered the show with a heated rivalry, and things reached a boiling point on episode six of the season.
In the sixth episode, the coaching staffs of Sonnen and Silva erupted in a brawl after Silva got in Sonnen’s face and spit in his direction. Sonnen pushed Silva away when “The Axe Murderer” answered by charging at Sonnen.
Sonnen ducked under and scored a takedown before the remainder of the coaches staffs intervened. During the scuffle, members of Wanderlei’s coaching staff sucker punched Sonnen leaving a mark on his forehead and ripped off his jersey.
Andre Dida was the coach responsible for the sucker punches.
Adding to the embarrassment, Silva’s coaching staff celebrated the attack.

It was a really unfortunate moment between the two and something that should have never happened. This is supposed to be a show about the fighters, but Wanderlei was unable to put his hatred for Sonnen aside for a few weeks.
Instead, he tried to attack Sonnen and this was the result.
