Brazilian prospects, get ready. "The Ultimate FIghter" is coming your way.
UFC executives recently announced that Brazilian middleweight and lightweight fighters are invited to an open tryout session on Dec. 14 in Sao Paulo.
Interested fighters must be between the ages of 21 and 35 years old and have at least three professional fights, two of which must be victories.
"The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" will be produced by Brazilian firm Floresta and air as part of the UFC's broadcast deal with Globo. The series is expected to feature 12 taped episodes in addition to a live finale.
While FUEL TV is expected to air the show in the U.S., UFC president Dana White has yet to officially announce a stateside broadcast partner.
Coaches for the Brazilian "TUF" debut have yet to be determined, but White confirmed both will be Brazilian and the entirety of the season will be filmed in Portuguese.
