The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil Cast Announced

All 32 of the fighters that will be competing in “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” have been revealed. The show features Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva as opposing coaches and will be airing here in the US on UFC.com and on FUEL TV. UFC.com will carry the show live as TUF: Brazil airs on Globo in that country, while the FUEL broadcast details have yet to be determined.

The coaches will square off at UFC 147 which is where the finals of the show will happen as well. Anderson Silva will defend his UFC Middleweight title that evening against Chael Sonnen in the main event.

TUF: Brazil will utilize the show’s original format whereby all content is pre-taped, unlike “The Ultimate Fighter: Live.”
