Dana White: Chael Sonnen Can’t Coach TUF: Brazil, He Wouldn’t Make It Out

A future bout between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva is in the works but don’t expect to see them coaching on the next season of TUF: Brazil. During a press conference in Brazil earlier today, UFC President Dana White was asked about a potential match up with the two as coaches on the show, the president was quick to shoot the idea down:

“People keep asking me if they’re going to be the coaches (for TUF Brazil 3),” said White in Brazil on a UFC World Tour stop in Rio de Janeiro on Monday. “I can’t have a Brazilian within 10 feet of Chael Sonnen in America Imagine bringing Chael Sonnen here for six weeks. I don’t think he’d make it.”

“I mean there’s situations in the United States where that we had an event where a Brazilian fan started swinging at Chael Sonnen trying to hit him. Then we did the Fan Expo, and a Brazilian tried to swing at him at that. Wanderlei’s name is ‘The Axe Murderer’ and he is a very proud Brazilian and he doesn’t like Chael Sonnen and the thing doesn’t surprise me one bit.”

“I don’t have to tell you guys, I stood here what was it a year and a half ago with Anderson sitting here, and Chael sitting here saying horrible things about this country and about the people and about him. Brazilians do not like Chael Sonnen.”
