The good news: Sonnen and Silva have finally agreed to face off in an official capacity. The bad news: It won’t take place for at least six more months. Earlier this week it was revealed the rivals would serve as head coaches on TUF Brasil 3 with action against one another to occur after taping concludes. It’s an interesting move to say the least, especially with so many American fans invested in the feud. On the bright side, it means Sonnen-Silva will almost certainly square off in Brazil, and the atmosphere involved will unquestionably be one of the most memorable in the organization’s history. Sonnen has rubbed plenty of Brazilians the wrong way and he’s sure to feel the heat come showtime. It’s even the kind of clash with enough appeal to serve as co-headliner if the UFC decides to shoot for a soccer stadium and 80,000+ fans.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from Diego Sanchez targeting Nate Diaz to Mike Tyson vs. Royce Gracie to the Chael Sonnen-Wanderlei Silva rivalry moving to TUF Brasil and much more in-between!
