    Sonnen vs Silva as coaches, in Brazil, that would be epic.

      Don’t think there are too many Brazilians that would wanna rep Team Sonnen

      • MJJ says:

        Thats what I was thinken to, but guess if your hungry enough and its your shot to display your skills on t.v., and possibly get a job in the UFC, you might suck it up and bite your tongue.

    There will be alot of translating going on unless one of the requirements is English! With that being said i look forward to alot of subs!

  5. Lex w says:

    Chael vs anderson…. let the fireworks fly

  6. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Silva vs Belfort

  7. Creature says:

    Lil Nog and Shogun maybe? they usually have the coaches be a weight class above the fighters, and both Shogun and Nog are huge names.

  8. Fabian says:

    The TUF in Brazil has nothing to do with the TUF in USA

    IT will be a Brazilian Version of TUF. It will be aired only in Brazil !!!
    Of Course it can be aired in USA, but only after it get aired in Brazil and Get the English Subs

    I Repite, TUF Brazil is a unique product !! It has nothing to do with The TUF 15 that will be aired on Fuel or FX in USA
