Wanderlei Silva has returned to his video blog ways, putting out an episode as The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 debuted on UFC Fight Pass Sunday evening.
The reality series features Silva and Chael Sonnen coaching Brazilian fighters. The two long-time rivals will finally square off this May at UFC Fight Night from Brazil.
Most of the talk surrounding the season centers around an incident involving the two coaches in which they had to be separated. For “The Axe Murderer,” the “brawl” only fueled his fire.
“It made me feel younger to brawl with that guy,” he said. “You guys will love it. I got a feel for it and I can tell I will destroy him.”
He added that the decision by the UFC to pair them up was an excellent one, saying, “it couldn’t be a bigger rivalry.”
As for the actual season of TUF, Silva stated “it was hard for filming. Those were 40 tough days. There was a fight every three days.
“It was hard for me because I get very emotionally invested. Training together, we became a team. They were like my sons to me.”
