Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva are opposing coach on TUF Brazil 3, and by all appearances, do not get along.

Things came to a head when the pair brawled, leaving Sonnen with bruises and a cut, and Wand with an injured back. The fight was then rescheduled, from May 31 in Sao Paulo, Brazil to July 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The brawl followed weeks of Wand demanding an apology for a number of disparaging remarks Sonnen has directed towards Brazil over the years.

"If I say something in a very private manner that isn't intended for a certain audience, come on, you can't hold that against me," said Sonnen in 2011 "I picked my medium very carefully when I talked about Brazil. I went to the internet. And if I had the foggiest idea that they had computers in Brazil, I wouldn't have done that."

Another time he tweeted offensively to Anderson Silva's manager, Ed Soares.

"Ed, pray to whatever Demon effigy you prance and dance in front of with your piglet tribe of savages that I decide not to CRUCIFY you," he tweeted.

No apology has been forthcoming from Sonnen. However, Sonnen's antics aside, he is a highly intelligent and compelling figure, and by some miracle, even on reality television, some of that came through. In an unexpected turn, the Brazilian audience is turning towards The Gangster from Oregon.

Now Wand has posted a 2011 image of Sonnen being interviewed, with text in Brazilian Portuguese, relating to a potential fight in Brazil with then champion Anderson Silva.

"If they sell 100,000 tickets I hope they put them in a nice ball, turn them sideways and shove them straight up their a--," it reads. "That’s what they can do with the Brazilian crowd."

Esse cara é racista não merece nosso respeito eu não ficaria bravo sem motivos isso é somente uma declaração a nosso respeito,agora se quer torcer pra ele tudo bem, merece meu respeito !!! Fique a vontade!!Não concordo com ele acho que nossa torcida deve se unir neste momento!! Juntos temos a força!!!

(This guy is a racist and he doesn’t deserve our respect. I wouldn’t be mad at him if I had no reasons to be. This is just one of the things he said about us. Now, if you want to cheer for him be my guest, you deserve my respect. I don’t agree with him and I think we should be united this time. We’re stronger together.)*

Naturally Sonnen responded.

@wandfc would like to get this tweet out. He has no followers, so let's help him. #teamnoapologies

Jeez Wand thanks for giving me your permission to root for Chael. The only thing that was stopping me was the fact that I didn't have your approval Phone Post 3.0

Wand sees that Chael is making new fans in Brazil and its making him mad. He's digging up the past stuff to stop the support Chael is getting.

Chael came in and focused on helping his Brazilian team and they see that there and appreciate it.

Wand is 109% right and if you don't agree then you must be the epiteme of a key board warrior or just plain living in a fantasy land. You cannot come out and say the things Chael has said and expect to get away with it. He should in fact have been suspended much like Torres for example. There is a code of conduct that needs to be followed as a professional athlete and Chael is not special enough to get away with it. Hell even Chuck agrees with Wand on this.

If it was WWE then fine, it's entertaining but it's not and if Joe Shmoe undercard had said the stuff Chael said about Brazil and Brazilians they would have got their walking papers....

Wand is a moron... this guy starts a fight, gets his ass kicked and injured ... then cancels a fight he will get paid for.

And now he is trying to rally people to stand together against Chael like he is some civil rights leader... full retard accurately describes wandy these days

Also I am fucking astounded at the fans walking away from Wand of all people on this. There used to be a time when Wand was considered the untouchable fighters fighter. Even if he was against your guy, you still loved him for the way he fights, the way the fighters who fight him do. You ever heard anyone except Chael really shit on Wand?

I'm living in a parallel fucking universe ....

Btw Chael entertains me too and I respect his attitude in the ring but come on....he's no Wand

It's a real shame, I think the general consensus is that Chael is a really nice, smart guy, who has masterminded 3 title shots through smack talk. That a guy as revered as Wand is through his Pride days to be seemingly making himself this unpopular through his ability to grasp Sonnens methods of selling a fight? It's just a pity..
