    i thought season 15 was going to be in Brazil??

  2. gary says:

    they may be doing tryouts there and here just so you can get the best of both?!?

  3. Shay says:

    If you read the comments to that Brazil post…it states its TUF Brazil…which will only aired there. Its completely separate from TUF 15.

  4. Shay says:

    Also, the first sentence says….”It would appear as if the first international edition of the UFC’s reality show”…which means itll be a complete international show, in addition to the original TUF.

  5. Spacit bjj says:

    Matt Secor. Remember that name for season 15
