Wanderlei Silva video blog for UFC 147 fight against Vitor Belfort (Episode 1)

Not long after they satisfy their coaching duties on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) "Brazil," longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veterans and bitter rivals Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva will hook 'em up (again) at the UFC 147 event from the Joao Havelange Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 23, 2012.

And Wandy is letting fans follow along during his training camp.

Silva has been looking for revenge since the pair first met inside the cage more than a decade ago at UFC 17.5: "Ultimate Brazil." Belfort defeated him in just 44 seconds by way of technical knockout.

The former PRIDE champ has since referred to "The Phenom" as "mentally weak" while Belfort insists "The Axe Murderer" is "just a spectator who wants to get attention for himself."

Silva is fresh of a second-round shellacking of former Strikeforce 185-pound champion Cung Le while Belfort recently put the screws to former UFC heavy middleweight Anthony Johnson.

Early predictions on this all-Brazilian showdown?
