Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva really don’t like each other, thus making ‘The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3’ one of the most highly anticipated ‘TUF’ seasons in recent memory.
“The American Gangster” recently sat down with MMAFighting.com to both promote the show and of course talk trash about his opposing coach on the UFC Fight Pass program, Wanderlei Silva.
“As far as the incident with Wanderlei, there were many incidents,” Sonnen said. “One of them has garnered more attention than the others. The guy was a complete struggle on a daily basis to work alongside.”
Dana White noted that putting together a video was more deciding what to leave out than put in.
“We have a treasure chest of s*** from this show,” said White via text message.
Chael went on to say that “The Axe Murderer’s” UFC record was the worst ever:
“Wanderlei’s record is the single worst in the history of the UFC,” he claimed. “That’s not just the Zuffa owned UFC, but the SEG UFC as well. He currently has five wins and eight losses. That is the record. He’s won his last two fights, so that means at one point he had three wins and eight losses. There’s never been a guy that terrible in UFC.”
Chael’s stats were a little bit off, as the long time PRIDE FC Middleweight Champion actually sports a record of 5-7 in the UFC and an overall MMA record of 35-12-1.
The two mixed martial arts veterans will finally settle their differences on May 31, when they square off in the featured bout of a UFC Fight Night event in Brazil.
