Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort are Officially Your TUF Brazil Coaches

(Let’s hope the rematch lasts a little longer.)

During the UFC 142 press conference this morning, the UFC announced that long time rivals Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort have been chosen as opposing coaches for the first international season of The Ultimate Fighter, which will be filmed on location in Brazil and entirely in Portugese, or in Mike Goldberg’s case, Japanese. The debut for TUF Brazil is set for March 25th as of this moment, with the finale being held sometime in June at a location TBD.

Few can forget the pair’s initial meeting, which took place back at UFC 17.5 and saw Vitor Belfort (making his light heavyweight debut) score the world record for most consecutive punches landed in a row, with 467,000 in just under 5 seconds. Wandy would go on to rule PRIDE’s middleweight division, whereas Vitor would put together a 13-6 record in various promotions before returning to the octagon, where he has gone 2-1 thus far.

Definitely an interesting development considering Dana White recently declared that he would be happy if Silva retired in the wake of his match with Cung Le, despite the fact that he won the fight. But if this is Wanderlei’s last fight, depending on the outcome of course, we couldn’t ask for a better match-up.

Who you guys got for this one?

You realize that Silva couldn't last 1 minute with Chris Leben right? What do you think belfort is gonna do to him.. we are more worried about his health than attempting to disrespect the guy. My comment about using irrelevant fighters for tuf.. I stand by that, and by irrelevant I meant not in title contention. I just don't want to see another hughes serra reality show where the title is put on hold for the duration of filming and airing tuf, the finale, hyping the fight, then finally when the time comes... fight doesn't happen anyway. I've said for a long time, put two big stars in there that aren't in line for a shot. I didn't mean to imply they are nobodoys by any means, just that we won't be sacrificing anything by having them as coaches. Also, stop being such a cry baby.

I've always wondered why the rematch didn't happen back in the Pride days, It's funny because after Vitor beat Wandy his career starte to decline but Wanderlai went on a streak that lasted years. I'm sure that the rematch must have been suggested back then, I'm just wondering if either of them were reluctant to take the fight.

@Ironclad, well said. But.... Ya dude... this is it. Donesky.
SonOfSerbia- December 13, 2011 at 10:19 pm
poor Wandy..after all that facial reconstructive surgery to make him look human again...he's about to have his face re-arranged worse than a Mr. Potato Head..
IronClad- December 13, 2011 at 9:32 pm
And dont even pretend Wanderlei's win over Cung Le wasnt some exciting shit. Contender or not, the guy is still good and still entertaining. Who the fuck do you think you are by saying stuff like "Wand fighting Vitor equals another concussion he probably doesn’t need or deserve." Yah...he may get KO'ed...and even retired after that and maybe not. The point is...he EARNED that fight, it was not handed to him.
IronClad- December 13, 2011 at 9:24 pm
Im not arguing weather Wand can beat Vitor or not. You completely missed the point. What I am telling you is that there is a general lack of respect for a guy who is a legend and helped to make MMA what it is today not only in Brazil, but in America. This incessant, sophomoric attitude against aging fighters who are still great and possess tons of respect and dignity in the fight game are discarded like a pieces of trash by all these internet trolls. You are free to express your opinion, as well as anyone else. Just know that you look like an ungrateful little brat who appreciates little, and is fickle when it comes to hardworking guys like the aforementioned. Hate on hater...hate on.

IronClad - In no other sport when athletes are in an obvious decline do the fans keep wanting to see them perform. Wand is a legend no doubt and seemingly an awesome person, but you are fucking crazy if you think he can stand in front of Vitor and wing wild punches while leaving his chin exposed and last 30 seconds. I don't even know if Wand haters exist but there comes a time to call it quits. If you are to respected by people that you can't go down and fight lesser competition but you can't hang with the elite anymore it's time to find another way to make money. Stan musial would fucking suck if a major league team signed him at this point in his life but it doesn't take away from his contributions to the sport or his legacy as one of the best of all time. Wand coaching equals a win for everybody involved, Wand fighting Vitor equals another concussion he probably doesn't need or deserve.

Skeletor- Your a moron, my man. either cannot read or choose not too. Maybe we have two different definitions of respect. I can tell you have none. If you took my post to heart...than your obviously guilty of it. Dont get so down on your self...just cut your fingers off so we don't have to read your repetitious bullshit that only you and maybe one other idiot finds funny. "Fuck you Danga". Shit man...that is hilarious, great schtick champ. How many times can you let the record skip?
skeletor- December 13, 2011 at 3:45 pm
@IronClad - I don't think anyone said anything bad about Wandy, just that he is probably gonna get knocked the fuck out by Vitor. This is actually a pretty tame thread considering the forum. You actually come off as the biggest whining bitch here.
Suck a dick Danga.
IronClad- December 13, 2011 at 3:41 pm
Wow. Most of you sound like disrespectful, gossiping little bitches. Wanderlei earned a coaching spot and he's an icon. He's still one the most exciting fighters...even today. Its funny how many of you actually consider your self real MMA fans. Your a fickle bunch, no heart at all. All of you sit here and talk all this nonsense with out appreciating were it came from. Haha, seriously editors of CAGE the hell do you deal with all these little mincey ovulating females with their non stop cry baby temper tantrums? Keep chugging that haterade, your gonna choke. You internet trolls belong on some sort of TMZ blog gossiping about celebs and fashion.

R.I.P Wanderlei
skeletor- December 13, 2011 at 2:43 pm
Yeah poor Wandy he might actually die. Which might be Dana's plan since he knows he'll never quit. We can also blame that fucking enabler Cung Le.
Fuck you Danga

I guess we will all good to see Wand have another concussion, yeah! One time give Dana please, give this guy someone that can't punch or kick through walls. The guys chin is gone. Maia or Sonnen would do nicely. But not, it has to be Vitor.
SnackDaddy- December 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm
my apologies in advance for whoever ends up on vitor's team.

So is Rumble Johnson vs Vitor still going down in January?

Alright! finally a TV show in which ALL the characters seem to speak with a mouth full of marbles.
ArmFarmer- December 13, 2011 at 1:01 pm
Ah, good. They finally took my advice and used fighters that aren't relevant instead of tieing up champions and contenders for a year and a half. Good call ufc, good call.
My captcha says "chailks".. I'm going to take that as an omen that stands for chael kills silva. Don't really care which one either.
