Sonnen: Wand almost left taping of TUF Brazil 3


This season of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil might have had the most confrontational relationship between two coaches, Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva. Promoting the season, Sonnen said that it got so bad Wanderlei even tried to leave:

"He is so stupid, I'm ashamed of him. He is a checkers player. In checkers you play one move at a time. If you are a chess player, you have to guess what I'm going to do and plan your next move, you have to be three or four moves ahead. He is so stupid, and I'm not trying to offend him, stupid is a word for a real thing. He comes and say: 'the show stops if you don't apologize for what you said about Brazil'. He did what a real checkers player would do. He would never imagine that I would refuse to apologize. When I refused, all what he could do was give up. He put himself in check, I didn't do that.

The show stopped and was almost over. They had to call Dana White and the producers. I begged him to come back and he didn't. So he called for a cab and the cab came. One producer had to stop him in the cab and make him come back."

Chael winding up Wanderlei up is hilarious. Wand just has no come back for him except to get physical. Wand has probably not been disrespected like this since he was a kid. Hes dumbfounded.

Yes he is a legend, but he is also acting like a bully. Too bad Chael gives zero fucks and that is just frustrating him even more. He is acting like a child on this show.

Wow this anti-Brazilian thing has gotten out of hand here. Wanderlei is a legend. One of the most feared and respected MMA fighters of all time. Yet some of you here are going way overboard with the remarks about Vitor, Shogun and now Wanderlei?Disgraceful.
