With the announcement of the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” and the two coaches, Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva, UFC have already begun to create a huge South American buzz in 2012. If the show airs domestically on FUEL TV as it is currently rumored, we could be looking at some of the greatest MMA content on television (as the Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz US version of the show will also be debuting in March of 2012).
Check out the video above, which features UFC President Dana White’s thoughts on the launch of the show, what it means for Brazilian fighters and the country as a whole.
