Former UFC light heavyweight (currently middleweight), Wanderlei Silva, has revealed that both he and UFC president Dana White have openly talked about him being a coach on a future season of the “Ultimate Fighter” reality series, which currently is in production for its ninth season.

“I’ve spoken to Dana and he’s spoken to me about future opportunities for working as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter,” Silva told Setanta Sports in a recent interview.

With his current UFC fanbase, there’s no doubt that viewers would tune in to watch a Silva-led team, but White would also have to find an opponent that fans would want to see Silva fight.
