Wanderlei Silva sends rival Chael Sonnen a heartfelt message after losing newborn baby

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3

Former TUF coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen had one of the most bitter rivalries the UFC has ever witnessed. Things got so heated during their filming of the tv series competition that a brawl erupted between the two that had to be broken up.

However, the fight game has its time and place and with Chael Sonnen’s heartbreaking situation with his newborn baby passing away, Silva sent his former enemy a very genuine message.

Silva posted the following on Facebook:

Desejo que Deus conforte o coração da família Sonnen, muito difícil perder um filho, tenha as minhas orações nesse momento, peço a todos que me acompanham que orem pela família Sonnen #luto #Deusconforte
