Bullshit Alert: Wanderlei/Sonnen “fight” on TUF set looks staged (video included)

Posted: February 28, 2014 in Commentary/Opinion

Sonnen-vs-Wanderlei-PosterThe UFC released a brief video that can only be described as a teaser. It highlighted a run-in between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva on the set of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. It shows Wanderlei telling Sonnen, “I don’t like you,” followed by some mild shoving.

I’m going to call bullshit on this though. Watch the video and take a hard look at the “swing” Wand threw at Sonnen. First off, it looked like an open hand. Secondly, he fired the punch with all the speed of a glacier. Sonnen appeared to easily dodge the punch and shoot on him, which I’m going to predict ended with them rolling around on the ground with neither man harmed in the least.

Do I think these guys hate each other? Yes I do. Do I think they’re both showmen looking to hype the shit out of this Fight Pass series? Absolutely. That’s why I’m calling bullshit on this “fight.” Am I crazy? I’d liek to hear what you guys think.
