As the third season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil nears it’s conclusion, the hype between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva is at an all-time high. The two veterans have had confrontations, smack talk, and scraps on the set of TUF; it’s fair to say that this beef has been cooked long enough. The controversy surrounding the fight between Sonnen and Wand’s team on TUF Brazil 3 swirled, but the fight date seemed to be moving further away.
The bout was originally slated for UFC 173, then moved to The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale, and now will go down at 175. The July fourth event should provide a host of great fights, especially considering the second title defense of middleweight boss Chris Weidman against Lyoto Machida. Something tells me that Silva/Sonnen may steal fight of the night.
At a recent presser for UFC 175, the tomfoolery continued, this time ‘The Axe Murderer’ took some of Sonnen’s jives to heart and UFC Prez Dana White had to step in. Check out the video from MMAFighting’s youtube channel, and stay tuned to LowKick!
