UFC President Dana White announced the news to Sonnen firsthand during a brief interview on FOX Sports Live.
"You two will coach The Ultimate Fighter. You will have a ton of security down there with you, and it should be a fun season," a smiling White told Sonnen.
Both Sonnen and Silva have coached The Ultimate Fighter once in the past. Sonnen squared off against Jon Jones on TUF 17, while Silva dueled Vitor Belfort on the inaugural season of TUF Brazil.
Following TUF Brazil 3's airing, the two rivals will collide inside the Octagon, finally putting an end to their lengthy war of words.
