Wanderlei Silva Thinks The Editing Of The Ultimate Fighter Makes Brazil Fans Like Chael Sonnen
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.01.2014



During a Q&A in Brazil (via MMA Fighting), Wanderlei Silva said that he believes the April 12 episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 was edited in such a way to make fans favor Chael Sonnen. There were 12 million viewers in Brazil who saw Silva take a swing at Sonnen and get taken down. While the two were brawling with Sonnen on top, one of Silva's assistant coaches, Andre Dida hit Sonnen in the back of the head with several punches. Here are highlights:

On being portrayed in a negative light: "They edited a lot of things, and unfortunately, the production decided to paint me as the villain. But that is not right, because he said horrible things about us, and disrespected me at every moment during filming. This good guy you're watching on television is not how things are for real. He said and did a lot of things that aren't being shown. What was shown on the show is not everything that happened. Behind what happened there is the motives and the reason why I was mad that day. Beside the absurd (things) that he has said about all of us, he had been provoking me and disrespecting me. Right on the first episode, he called me stupid. Not at any moment did I go down to his level."

On rumors that his fight with Sonnen will be his last: "Only God knows. "I am coming off of good performances in my last three fights. In all three fights i won four bonuses. I got three fight of the night bonuses and in my last fight (a fight of the year candidate where knocked out Brian Stann), I got knockout of the night," he said. "I am still able to perform well and give the public a reason to cheer."

On not telling fans who to cheer for: "If you learned about all he has said and done, and you still cheer for him, you'll have my respect. I will just tell you not to lose your money because I will win this fight."
