While there were reportedly numerous serious concerns about the safety of Chael Sonnen and his team of coaches headed to Brazil for the filming of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3, not everyone in Brazil hates “The American Gangster.”
Sonnen in an exclusive interview with MMAWeekly.com talked about security concerns, but it turns out, he has his own fan club in Brazil. And no the aren’t all American ex-pats or anything either… we’re talking Brazilian fans of Chael P. Sonnen!
Sonnen will step back in the Octagon at UFC 173 in May opposite fellow TUF Brazil 3 coach and nemesis Wanderlei Silva.
