Things got heated on the set of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil III recently, with head coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen coming to blows on set.
The pair had to be separated, but not before Andre Dida - like Silva, a veteran of the old Chute Boxe team - had hit Sonnen in the back of the head.
Sonnen has used to Twitter to post about Silva having meltdowns and losing his temper. Today he tells Fighters Only he thinks that stress is behind the Brazilian’s outbursts.
“Wand is fat. He hasn't taken his shirt off since we have been here,” Sonnen writes by email.
“He thought our fight would be in July, but it got announced for May. He's stressed and trying to get out of it.”
Filming on TUF Brazil III concludes later this month. The season will then begin airing exclusively via UFC Fight Pass in March.
