Chael Sonnen 'attacked' by Brazilian fan at TUF 17 Finale

"[Chael's trash talk] exploded with the Anderson Silva fight, when he started ripping him and Brazil. Last weekend, I don't know if any of you guys saw or heard about this, but he was there, shaking hands with everybody and everything, and this guy says, 'Hey Chael! Chael! C'mon over here.' Chael goes over there and the guy starts swinging on him, tried to punch him. [Security] bundled the guy up and dragged him out and he's saying, '**** you! You are a piece of shit! I'm from Brazil' and all this other stuff. The guy attacked him at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale last Saturday. It was a bad move [for that guy] -- they didn't take him out of there politely. He got bundled and dragged over every stair on the way out [laughs]."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, during his UFC on Fox 7 pre-event media scrum (watch it here), detailed an ugly off-camera incident at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale, which took place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, this past Saturday night (April 13, 2013). White revealed that Chael Sonnen, who was on the scene as coach for TUF 17 finalists Kevin Gastelum and Uriah Hall, as well as doing some awkward promotional work to hype his upcoming 205-pound title fight with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones at UFC 159, was involved in an altercation with an angry Brazilian mixed martial arts (MMA) fan. One who probably didn't care for Sonnen's disparaging comments about his homeland in the build up to his rematch with Anderson Silva at UFC 148, even if "The American Gangster" was trying to build beef and put butts in seats. Indeed, he often crossed the line, especially when he suggested that he'd "pat Silva's wife on the ass and have her make him a steak." Sonnen didn't stop at Silva, targeting Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Wanderlei Silva, among others, which prompted irate responses from both Brazilian legends here and here. In fact, "Big Nog" at one point suggested that Sonnen would never come to Brazil because "the people would kill him in the street." He wasn't lying, considering that Sonnen apparently isn't even safe in "Sin City."

Chael really would get attacked if he walked the open streets in Brazil. That's why he would never do that haha.
