Chael Sonnen will be coaching opposite new nemesis Wanderlei Silva in the third installment of TUF Brasil, and given the vast amount of kind things the American has said of the Brazilians – and their subsequent deep-rooted love for the man – it’s expected that Sonnen will be the first-ever TUF coach killed on set. Details of the makeups of the teams (i.e., weight classes, nationalities, etc.) are nonexistent at this point, and Sonnen will reportedly still face Rashad Evans at UFC 167. In theory, he would also face “The Axe Murderer” sometime after the TUF season ended, although his death will likely force Joe Silva to find a replacement.

Here he is talking to RM Sports about it ahead of his UFC Fight Night 30 bout:

Observations From My Couch: UFC 166 – “Ultimate Brain Damage”
  • Was UFC 166 an awesome UFC or what? Too bad TJ Waldburger’s memory of it is completely blank from his walkout to about this coming Wednesday.
  • I feel cheated that KJ Noons fought without his grand bouffant.
