Dana White Reveals That Wanderlei Silva Injured His Back In A Brawl With Chael Sonnen
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.17.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, UFC President revealed that not only was a brawl between Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1 MMA, 5-7 UFC) and Chael Sonnen (28-14-1 MMA, 7-6 UFC) on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 real, but Silva injured his back in the process. He will be forced to postpone his fight with Sonnen as a result. The fight, originally set to take place at the TUF Brazil 3 Finale on May 24 in Sao Paulo, will now happen at UFC 175 on July 5 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Here are highlights:

On Silva's injury: "What happened was Wanderlei got hurt in that fight. He got double legged on the concrete and he hurt his back. He hurt his hand punching Chael in the head and he got injured. He couldn't fight on time because he got hurt in the fight f—ing coaching a show. I'm done being angry now. I was angry when it happened. It's just disgusting."

On claims that the fight was staged: "There's a bunch of idiots in the media saying, ‘That thing looks contrived'. It was far from contrived. That thing was a disgusting display of what shouldn't happen, and if I was there it would have never happened. The fact that there were other people, even people holding camera in that f–king place and let that happen is just beyond belief. Then the kid who runs in and sucker-punched Chael from behind, it's just as bad as it can get."
