Team Silva is waxing Team Sonnen right now. We’ll see what happens this week. Here’s our The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 Episode 5 Recap.
Because they won, Wanderlei got to pick the fight again and he chose Ricardo Abreu to face Guilherme Vasconcelos.
TUF Brazil is like Survivor with their special challenges and rewards. Both groups have to make rafts out of bamboo and inner tubes and race while the Octagon girls look on in their camo bikinis. Winners get a special dinner and losers have to make it.
Of course, Team Silva won.
Guilherme aka Bomba wonders if Ricardo aka Demente asked Wanderlei for the fight.
As part of being on the losing team in the challenge, Team Sonnen has to make Team Silva’s dinner while dressed as waiters. It’s a very romantic setting. It’s Demente’s birthday and they had a surprise cake for him. He was pretty emotional.
Chael thinks Bomba is giving up size, but will make it up in speed and is well rounded.
Ricardo “Demente” Abreu vs. Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos
Demente was the aggressor, both on the ground and on the feet. He also looks 20 pounds heavier than Bomba. He’s fairly mechanical with his standup as he’s hugely muscular on top. Bomba can’t really move him.
Bomba fought hard in the second as both were tired. He started landing some big shots and nearly got a takedown. But Demente got the takedown late and hammered him with some ground and pound to possibly steal the round late.
Winner: Ricardo “Demente” Abreu by unanimous decision
Wanderlei says he’s going to charge Chael cover because they’re putting on a great show. What a great line that is.
Chael thinks Wanderlei is cherry picking and is staying away from his top guys.
Next week is their confrontation that everyone was talking about.
