TUF Brazil Video: Wanderlei Silva Gives Advice, Gets Accolades

Wanderlei Silva is excited about TUF Brazil.

With The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil set to debut on March 25, the UFC is trying to create some anticipation by releasing preview videos. The latest came out Sunday featuring one of the coaches, Wanderlei Silva.

The short clip opens with Silva and UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos saying hi and signing autographs for fans at an outdoor press event. One of the fans asks Silva, "When are you going to kill Chael Sonnen?" and he replies, "Soon."

Silva then shows up at Rio's X-Gym, giving some words of encouragement to a group of fighters that includes former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Ronaldo Souza and former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael Cavalcante. Silva will coach against Vitor Belfort on the first ever TUF to record outside the U.S., expected to lead the way for future international TUFs. The two will coach featherweights and middleweights.

Stateside, TUF Brazil will air on UFC.com and on Globo in Brazil. Belfort vs. Silva and the finals of the competitions will air during a summer PPV in Brazil, the same expected to be headlined by Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II.
