UFC president Dana White was not impressed with the level of skill the fighters from The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil displayed this past weekend at UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin 2. And when White isn’t happy, that’s not a good thing.
“I think that these guys from TUF Brazil came out like killers all season long,” said White, during the post-fight show on FUEL TV. “But, I think because this was such a big event and they were running around signing autographs all day, they got a little caught up in the hype.”
White mentioned how the finals on the U.S. version of the show are usually the best fights, adding, “the final fight is the biggest one and they come out and fight.”
Rony Jason and Cezar Ferreira were crowned the first-ever TUF: Brazil champions in their respective weight classes.
