With Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort set to compete as coaches on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil and then expected to fight at UFC 147, it was inevitable that we'd see some trash talk kick off. The two fought all the way back at UFC Brazil in 1998 with Belfort getting a 44 second TKO win.
While Vitor won their first meeting, it's Silva that has gotten in the best pre-rematch shots via his Twitter.
Here are the tweets in question with translations provided by Orcus:

@SpiderAnderson,ajuda aceita Quero aprender aquele chute que vc deu Bem na Boca dele!!! Quero fazer igualzinho
Translated: @SpiderAnderson, I want to learn that kick you landed on his mouth, I want to do it exactly the same.
My opponent is an excellent athlete. He only has one flaw: he's such a drag. I then ask you: do the annoying know that they're annoying?
This could be quite a fun ride to the rematch.
