It looks like MMA promotions are pretty hip to this internet jive.
Bellator announced today that all future events will be broadcast live and in high definition through their partners at Spike.com. The UFC announced today that The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil will be headed Stateside via stream through TUF.tv.
The episodes will air on TUF.tv in the U.S. weekly on Sunday nights at 11:30pm ET and will be subtitled for those of us who remain Portuguese-challenged. This Sunday night will see thirty-two fighters battling it out to determine who’ll make it into the house and onto the teams.
The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil marks the first installment of the show to be filmed on another country’s soil and is intended to pave the way for several more international versions of the show.
Brazilian MMA heroes Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will coach teams made up of featherweight and middleweight UFC hopefuls on the show, with a fight between the two coaches scheduled upon the show’s conclusion.
The Ultimate Fighter 15 (The Ultimate Fighter: Live) is currently underway and being taped in Las Vegas.
