It happened today...
Dana White recently spoke (via MMAjunkie) about filming on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 and said that coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva got in a physical fight during taping. He noted that the UFC is "dealing with fixing the mess" it cause. Check out the highlights:
On Silva as a coach: "Wanderlei has been an experience, to say the least. I compare him to an onion – you peel him back, and there keeps being layers. You know the cartoon where the guy gets super angry and runs out of ideas and then smoke starts coming out of his ears? That's happened with Wanderlei a couple of times out of nowhere...I feel like if all the teams get together, and all the coaches get together, we can get him through this. He reminds me of that feisty grandpa you see at the holidays. Even though he's old and a little bit broken down, he's still got some spirit. He's still got that spunk in him that you would miss. And I think that's what Wanderlei brings to this whole thing. If we can all just help him and get him through this and to our fight, I'll be like the bridge that gets him from that point to retirement – which is where he's headed."
