32 Featherweights And Middleweights Revealed For TUF Brazil


The first ever international edition of “The Ultimate Fighter” is starting to garner more and more attention as we approach the broadcast debut.

We released the first promotional trailer earlier this afternoon and now; through press release we have the official 32 fighter roster for the Brazilian edition of the UFC’s reality series.

Focusing on a cast mixed of featherweights and middleweights, “TUF Brazil” features a coaching staff made up of legendary UFC fighters Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva. The two coaches will face each other in a middleweight bout upon the shows conclusion.

The show will be in the traditional “TUF” format that viewers got accustomed to on SPIKE TV and not the new “Live on FX” format. US audiences will be able to watch the series on UFC.Com or FUEL TV and Brazilian households will pick up the show on “Globo”.
