Chael and Wandy to Coach TUF Brazil

Rivals Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will coach against one another on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil.
UFC stars Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva have made no secret of wanting to fight one another, and now it seems that will happen -- but only if they make it through a season of working together as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brasil.

UFC president Dana White made the announcement that the bitter rivals will coach the third season of TUF Brazil on Monday's FOX Sports Live.

Sonnen, no stranger to picking fights against Brazilians, has waged a campaign to fight "The Axe Murderer," writing him a series of poems and using his victory interview at UFC Fight Night in Boston to call him out.

"Sonnen, I will punch your face in," said Silva in his response video. "I will make you swallow your teeth." The two also had to be separated when they came face-to-face at an expo last month.

Tryouts for TUF Brasil 3 will be held in Rio de Janeiro on Monday, November 11 and are open to middleweights, light heavyweights and heavyweights, with filming expected to begin in early 2014.
