Can’t get enough Chael Sonnen? Better pony up for UFC Fight Pass. | Marcelo Alonso/Sherdog.com
If you don’t have a subscription to UFC Fight Pass, you will not be able to see the feud between rival coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva on Season 3 of “The Ulltimate Fighter: Brazil.”
The UFC announced on Monday that the reality show will air on the promotion’s recently launched digital service beginning on March 9. “TUF: Brazil 3” will be available on demand for Fight Pass subscribers every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The free trial period for Fight Pass ends on Feb. 28; subscriptions can be purchased for $9.99 per month after that. Fight Pass will also have a behind-the-scenes feature that includes regular updates from Sonnen.
Filming is already in progress for “TUF: Brazil 3,” which features middleweights and heavyweights vying for a six-figure UFC contract. The main attraction for many viewers, however, will be the growing animosity between coaches Sonnen and Silva, who will fight at a later date.
Apparently things are already escalating between the future combatants. UFC President Dana White recently revealed that a fight broke out between Sonnen and Silva in Brazil, with one of Silva’s coaches punching Sonnen during the skirmish.
