Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva Get Into Fight on Set of ‘TUF: Brazil 3’ (Video)
UFC president Dana White loves it, of course. Their feud has all the drama of the WWE, but with real fighting. That’s why he’s got the two squaring off against each other at a Fight Night event in Brazil on May 31, and that’s why he hired them to be opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3—because he thought their natural antagonistic chemistry makes great TV.
He was right. Back in January, White told members of the media ahead of UFC 169 that Sonnen and Silva had gotten into an unscripted fight on the set of TUF: Brazil 3. At the time, White said “it’s good and it’s bad,” because, ostensibly, it’s unprofessional to fight in the workplace.
However, in reality it’s all good. It just gets people pumped up for the show, and pumped up for their light heavyweight bout in May.
The UFC released a little teaser trailer back at the end of February that hinted at the fight.
However, on Sunday the entire fight made it onto the internet. And despite my initial doubts, it looks pretty intense.
Take a look, and watch how one of Silva’s guys sucker punches Sonnen:
