TUF Brazil gets 8,000,000 viewers

In a milestone for Brazilian MMA, “The Ultimate Fighter Brazil” began on Sunday, the first edition of the reality show to take place outside the U.S. According to the Brazilian Institute of Public Opinion and Statistics, Globo increased its audience by 15 percent during the “TUF Brazil” premiere. It was estimated that approximately 8 million people watched the show throughout the South American country.

Unlike its live American counterpart, which airs each Friday on FX, “TUF Brazil” follows a format similar to that of the show’s previous installments. Sixteen fighters will be confined in a house and divided between featherweight and middleweight. The top two from each weight class are expected to square off at UFC 147 on June 23, with the eventual winners earning a six-figure contract with the UFC.

 Bummer that they couldn't work a deal with Fuel in time. I heard it'll air on Fuel in a couple months. I don't like watching stuff on my computer anymore.

He'll leave the show on a stretcher. 1-4 in his last 5 fights. Couldn't hack it on the Strikeforce Challengers circuit. But he's UFC material?
