At today’s press conference to announce UFC: Rio in August next year Dana White was asked if a rumor that Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen would be the coaches on TUF 13 was true.
White revealed that the coaches have still to be decided, but that Sonnen and Silva had been ruled out.
That ties in with an earlier message on Sonnen’s twitter account directed at Silva.
“It’s for the best. I would have embarrassed you from the opening take to the final wrap. Take 2 weeks off, evaluate your career, then quit,” Sonnen had posted.
White said that they hope to establish who will be coaches on Friday. The season is expected to begin filming early next year.
