Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen are set to coach opposing teams on the next season TUF: Brazil, and although Silva had lobbied for USA vs. Brazil, that doesn't seem to be the case:

UFC President Dana White was recently asked to share some details on TUF: "Brazil 3," in particular, the nationalities of the fighters who will comprise Sonnen's team. White confirmed at a recent press conference that Sonnen will, in fact, coach a team of all Brazilian fighters.

"This is a big rivalry. I don’t know how many Brazilians will want be on Chael’s team, but he was a great coach on The Ultimate Fighter 17 in the U.S."

What is even more interesting in this assertion is that Sonnen seems to completely have a different idea of how the show will go down. In an interview with Bleacher Report, he recited a conversation with Joe Rogan that elaborated on UFCs supposed plans:

"My understanding is that the show will have purely Brazilian contestants. That's a little different than in America, where we bring in competitors from all over the world. I know on my last team we had a gentleman from England. I had a gentleman from Jamaica. I had a gentleman from Sweden. All on one team. But when we take the show to a foreign market, we seem to only build talent from that market. It's a bit of a different formula."

Heeltoballs - Please oh please let Shogun be the coach. Shogun needs that win back. Losing to Sonnen like that is pathetic. Shogun needs his revenge. If Shogun takes Sonnen serious this time, Shogun beats Sonnen easily
Shogun embarrassed himself already, why punish him in his homeland? Phone Post 3.0

I think this is even better because theres so much animosity between Chael and Brazilians.

If Chael was amazed that they have the internet in Brazil, his heads going to explode when he finds out they have TV's.

He must think that TUF Brazil is going to be a live performance conducted on a stage lit with candles and watched by homeless children. Phone Post 3.0

thought the same thing.i think the guy gets confused and thinks dana is implying there will be all types of backgrounds and "i dont know how many brazilians will want to be on his team." i think dana was under the impression everyone knew it was all brazilian fighters.(except this guy i guess)
