The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil 3 will crown a winner in the heavyweight and middleweight divisions

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans know the location of the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil 3, the two coaches -- Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen -- and now which weight classes will vie for the six-figure contract.

Chael Sonnen is headed south for the winter for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil, which will begin filming on Jan. 12, 2014 in and around Sao Paulo.

His coaching counterpart comes in the form of Wanderlei Silva and while the two don't get along all too well, this will surely make for must-see television when TUF: 'Brazil 3' airs this March on the newly released "Fight Pass" digital streaming service.

The show dynamic will certainly be multiplied due to the fact that the division with the highest potential for fireworks will be making its first appearance on the reality series since TUF 10.

MMAFighting.com has confirmed that the upcoming cast will feature 185-pound and 265-pound contestants. The official tryouts also included light heavyweights, but Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) decided to go with middleweight and heavyweight prospects only.

Allow the Kimbo Slice jokes to commence.

Could Silva and Sonnen -- if they go back down to 185 -- possibly be coaching a fighter they may end up fighting somewhere down the line? Maybe. That's if they don't rip the other's head off in the process.
