According to TUF Brazil 3 coach Jamie Huey, White's criticism of the producers was accurate, as it was the producers who set it up.
“I’ll kind of break something here, that’s not really a story being told," Huey said to TalkingBrawl's Niall McGrath. "Everybody wants to know if that was a set up. Not in regards to Chael or Wanderlei. Kind of something that was being said and done. Which I thought was… production had told Wanderlei, and you can see it after the brawl, Wanderlei goes up to our team and Warlley Alves specifically and says you guys need to watch out for this guy. He’s talking shit about your own team.
"Now production had been telling Wanderlei that Chael had been saying things about our team negatively when they weren’t around. Wanderlei got uh, he was a little, you know, offended by that. It wasn’t true but it was basically something that was said (by) production to Wanderlei to kind of strike up a reaction. I don’t think they thought it was going to go the extreme that it did. And were all being held back on the other side of the door, not knowing what's going on.
"We're getting ready to go to the weigh ins, and the next thing Warlley, Pazzone, and a few other guys bust through the door. I think Dida might have been the first guy to go through the door. And that's when the fight took place. I think it was something that was set up to get a reaction, but inadvertently, nobody knew it was going to go to the extent that it did. I am glad nobody got hurt seriously though."
Huey was asked directly if he believes the production set it up.
“Oh, I know it was," said Huey. "I went out to dinner with a couple of guys and they admitted that it was something that was orchestrated.”
