Isn't this fight signed for the 31st? In Sao Paulo if I'm not mistaken? Guess Chael will be taking one more secret to the grave with him.

Not sure if this is what he was talking about. But here ya go.


Wanderlei Silva said he would quit the Ultimate Fighter Brazil mid-season if Chael Sonnen didn't apologize for mocking Brazil. Chael wouldn't and Wanderlei had to un-quit the show.

Chael Sonnen talked to about Wanderlei Silva's ultimatum to quit the show if Chael didn't apologize for his offensive comments about Brazil and why nothing came of Silva's attempted power play:

He is so stupid, I'm ashamed of him. He is a checkers player. In checkers you play one move at a time. If you are a chess player, you have to guess what I'm going to do and plan your next move, you have to be three or four moves ahead. He is so stupid, and I'm not trying to offend him, stupid is a word for a real thing. He comes and say: 'the show stops if you don't apologize for what you said about Brazil'. He did what a real checkers player would do. He would never imagine that I would refuse to apologize. When I refused, all what he could do was give up. He put himself in check, I didn't do that. The show stopped and was almost over. They had to call Dana White and the producers. I begged him to come back and he didn't. So he called for a cab and the cab came. One producer had to stop him in the cab and make him come back.

Sonnen elaborated on why he refused to apologize and Wanderlei's reaction.

The producers told me that maybe I should apologize. I said: "No, I can't. It's not an ego thing, I don't blame myself for any of that. I can't apologize because they will be just meaningless words. I'm happy because I did that. I thought it was fun and I could do it all again today." Wanderlei asked me why I couldn't apologize and I said it worked, I wanted to fight against Anderson Silva, I got the fight and I liked saying what I said. It was fun. I could do it again today. Wanderlei was so angry, he looked like a cartoon character with smoke coming from his ears.

Sonnen and Silva will face each other on May 31 in UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo.
And just because it wasn't posted elsewhere:


The UFC grudge match between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will take place on May 31 in São Paolo, Brazil, at the Ibirapuera Arena, UFC officials confirmed on Sunday.

UFC Brazil Managing Director Grace Tourinho said during the UFC Fight Night 38 post-fight press conference that the fight is signed and will be the main event for the upcoming card. A second UFC official confirmed the signing to

Silva and Sonnen have been coaching opposite each other on the third installment of TUF: Brazil, and the two have had heated interactions before and during the show.

UFC President Dana White told earlier this year that Sonnen and Silva engaged in a physical altercation during taping of the show, an occurrence that was later publicized through a viral video.

As of last week, the fight had not been signed, according to comments made by White during a media event in Dallas. The UFC boss added that he intended on getting the fight signed and finalized within the days following.

Sonnen comes into the contest having lost three of his last four fights, most recently dropping a first-round TKO to Rashad Evans last November.

Silva hasn’t fought for over a year at this point, most recently earning a knockout of Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel TV 8 in March 2013.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Wanderlei is indeed a very simple minded person - Sonnen was little harsh and used the word stupid - but in reality, Wand is a legendary warrior with limited sight. Great heart, but so much given to his emotions, he is easy target to Sonnen to do what he pleases.

When it comes to mind games or wording tricks, Sonnen vs Wand is really a matter of a black-belt toying with kids visiting the gym.
