- Vinny Magalhaes recently spoke about the reported fight between Chael Sonnen & Wanderlei Silva on the set of the Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. Here are the highlights…
On Sonnen's Actions: "Chael was using some bad words, and that's something I've never seen him do in all the years I've known him. I've never seen Chael that aggressive in a situation where there wasn't a fight," Magalhaes said. "It was pretty intense."
On How it Started: "You're going to have to watch," he said. "I can't say who it was. Wanderlei and Chael were in a situation, and somebody came and jumped on Chael."
On The Quality of the Season: "I'm going to compare it to other seasons of what I've seen in ‘TUF Brazil' and also what I hear from producers," he said. "I think this is by far the best one. You've got a lot of guys with good experience, guys that once people see, they've heard of the guy before even before ‘TUF.' I think it's better than the first two seasons (in Brazil), for sure."
Was it Staged?: "I can guarantee it was not staged," Magalhaes said. "Not even close to being staged."
