Anderson Silva Turned Down Chance To Coach The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil With Chael Sonnen
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.17.2013

MMA Junkie reports that Anderson Silva (33-5 MMA, 16-1 UFC) turned down Chael Sonnen's offer to help him coach the third season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. His manager Ed Soares told him about the offer.

He said: "It is true I did get invited. But unfortunately, I'm not in Brazil, so I'm not going to be able to go down there and help. But I think for the sport, it would be something that will be great, especially because the guys competing are all Brazilian, so it would be good to go on either team and help them."

Silva was interviewed during a media conference to support his rematch with middleweight champion Chris Weidman (10-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) at UFC 168, which happens on December 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It airs live on PPV.

Sonnen originally told MMAFighting.com that he would try to get Silva's help for the show, which begins filming in January. He will coach opposite Wanderlei Silva before a fight this summer. Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva were training partners on the MMA team Chute Boxe, but "The Spider" didn't say there was a conflict based on his history. Silva moved to Los Angeles years ago and is there full time.

Weidman scored an upset when he knocked out Silva in July, who was previously undefeated in the UFC and had the UFC record for the most consecutive title defenses (10). The UFC expects the rematch to have a large amount of PPV buys and produce a live gate of over $6 million.
