It was announced during yesterday’s UFC on FUEL TV 3: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier fight that The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil will debut on FUEL TV this June 10 at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
The first international edition of The Ultimate Fighter, TUF: Brazil features Brazilian MMA legends Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort coaching opposing teams of featherweight and middleweight fighters vying for a UFC contract. The show did not adopt the format implemented by the currently airing Stateside version of TUF, The Ultimate Fighter: Live.
The previously taped show can currently be seen Sunday nights on Globo in Brazil and on UFC.com in the States. The version to air on FUEL TV will be subtitled for the English-speaking audience.
UFC 147 will host the coach fight between Belfort and Silva (which is a rematch of their 1998 meeting) as well as the show’s two respective finals matches. UFC 147 takes place on June 23 at the Estádio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
