Just a few days ago, it was announced that Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 coaches Wanderlei Silva will square off in the co-main event at UFC 173. The main event sees Middleweight Champion square off against Vito Belfort.and
Unfortunetly, it appears that former PRIDE Middleweight Champion Wanderlei may have gotten fat during the TUF filming , and he is stressed about the new official date, according to Sonnen in an interview with Fighters Only magazine:
Wand is fat. He hasn’t taken his shirt off since we have been here. He thought our fight would be in July, but it got announced for May. He’s stressed and trying to get out of it.
Since this is coming directly from Sonnen, the truth is probably fuzzy and we all know he could be trying to add more fuel to the fire because these two despise each other so much. A fight between them already broke out on the show. I shit you not!
Either way, I’m pretty sure Silva is going to make the cut for May 24, 2014.
