By: Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

"Wanderlei Silva and Andre Dida became a target after the UFC aired the episode where Silva and Chael Sonnen got into a fight during the The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 reality show tapiings.

"Dida, who punched Sonnen in the back of the head after he took Silva down in the gym, said he did what he did to defend his friend. Silva, who teased Sonnen since the beginning of the show, trying to force him to apologize for his bad words against Brazil, claims that Sonnen was the only who initiated the brawl.

"'People have no idea what was like to handle that guy teasing us every single day at TUF,' Silva wrote on his Facebook page. 'That was the moment where the glass overflowed. We’re not in favor of any type of violence.

"'This week, I’ll release a video so people will understand the whole context and not only the isolated fact. He started the brawl. I had already let it go and he kept teasing. I ask for apology for the bad impression.'

"Speaking to MMA Fighting, Sonnen had a different version of the facts."
