Video: Anderson Silva not afraid of Nick Diaz at UFC 183, but 'scared' to coach TUF Brazil 4

"I don't like the TUF because it's too much, the guys go inside the house, destroy the pool ... this is bad! This is not real. When I starting, I don't have money for nothing. No have big house, no have food, no have superman, no have nothing! Now? I think I have the great experience for the past for these guys for the new TUF. I'm very excited, but I'm really scared."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon this weekend for a featured fight against Nick Diaz in the UFC 183 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (live results here). Not long after, "The Spider" will be seen coaching a team of up-and-coming mixed martial arts (MMA) rookies opposite Mauricio Rua for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil 4," airing on Globo and UFC Fight Pass (more on that here). Silva is no stranger to the combat sports reality show and knows what to expect when you cram 16 young men into a house with booze and expect them to self-police. Understandably, he's a bit apprehensive about his role as middleweight babysitter and then we have the whole "Shogun" dynamic. The more I think about it, the more I think this might be a season worth tuning in for.
