For those that can’t wait to see when FUEL TV will re-broadcast it, The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil will begin streaming this coming Sunday evening on TUF.tv. The show will begin at 11:30 p.m. ET each Sunday night.
Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort are the coaches for the first international version of the show, which will continue to use the same format as before in determining fights for TUF. Now, the show is under a live format in the U.S.
Sixteen featherweights and 16 middleweights from Brazil are slated for action. Silva and Belfort, along with the finals in each weight class, will be part of a pay-per-view event – expected to be UFC 147 – from Brazil later this summer.
It is unknown when the series will be shown on FUEL TV, though it is likely slated for later this spring or in the summer.
Also, the 16 matches have been set for the elimination-round in both featherweight and middleweight. MMAJunkie.com was the first to confirm the streaming and fight announcements.
