Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva are taking their rivalry to primetime. The two light heavyweights have been selected to coach the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil.

UFC President Dana White announced the news to Sonnen firsthand during a brief interview on FOX Sports Live.

Wandy's latest video

"You two will coach The Ultimate Fighter. You will have a ton of security down there with you, and it should be a fun season," a smiling White told Sonnen.

Sonnen (29-13-1) and Silva (35-12-1, 1 NC) are set to begin filming before the end of the year, likely following Sonnen's battle against Rashad Evans at UFC 167.

Both Sonnen and Silva have coached The Ultimate Fighter once in the past. Sonnen squared off against Jon Jones on TUF 17, while Silva dueled Vitor Belfort on the inaugural season of TUF Brazil.

Following TUF Brazil 3's airing, the two rivals will collide inside the Octagon, finally putting an end to their lengthy war of words.

Yeah, I wanna see this fight, but it means absolutely zilch. With any luck, the UFC'll acknowledge this is just a fun fight & make it a Franklin-weight bout at 195.

ok .. i am not saying i am not going to watch it .. LOL .. but yeah, i don't think it has a bearing on any title shots ... i like that idea of a franklin weight fight .... maybe rich should be the special guest referee .... just so he is tied his namesake weight category .....

They probably want American fans to tune into Brazil TUF seasons. I don't want to read that many subtitles.

Chael will be villafied by the Brazillians, and even the guys on his team will wish Wanderlei had picked them, but yet some warm to him "is funny guy". What a predictable season. Then Chael will make short work out of Wanderlei when they fight later.

If not for Chael I wouldn't tune in. *groan

Wanderlei wants it to be Brazil vs USA, which I think is a great idea.

Here is a good interview with Chael and he also hints at maybe getting Anderson to help him coach.
