Who/what is Palmeiras for those of us who don't follow football?

But if he dissed Brazilian footballers, that's some big brass balls on Sonnen. I like how they helpfully put in the Portuguese subs for Sonnen's Brazilian... umm... fans

Well he didn't diss them, but he said he would gift them Silva's belt... Which is quite insulting :P

Palmeiras is one of the top 3 Brazilian soccer teams. It has almost 17 million supporters and is one of the most successful clubs in Brazil...

...until this season. They were awful. They ended up in the eleven position and internationally they weren't great as they should be.

That's why Sonnen is dissing them: they were mediocre this season and he congrates, ironically, for his "great" season.

Sonnen ftw.

Thanks. So even in his congratulations he manages to make a huge insult (of course on purpose).

He must have 10th dan belt in trolling.

What's the story behind the jersey?

I'm American so I'm pretty much clueless about soccer.

It's just the jersey of one of the most important and popular football clubs in Brazil who had one awful season.

As far as I understand it, they are the arch-rivals Silva's favorites... (Who are also one of Silva's sponsors)

Aha, that makes a lot of sense then, I knew some of the Brazilian fighters had got sponsor deals with some soccer teams but I didn't know that was Silva's teams' rival.
