TUF Brazil to debut on FOX in June

by Brian Hemminger | source: mmamania.com

Fuel TV's Executive Vice President and General Manager George Greenberg made the announcement earlier today during a special conference call with the media.

"We're probably going to air it in June and the reason why we're not airing it simultaneously is because we don't want to take any air out of the room promotionally for TUF on FX," explained Greenburg. "TUF on Brazil is something that is airing in real time in Brazil and if you haven't seen it here, that just means you haven't seen it here.

"In the wonderful world of time-shifting, as soon as TUF on FX is done, then we will premier TUF Brazil which will be a great promotional tool to lead into the next TUF on FX and it will be a constant give and a go between a series that is happening right here and now and a series that possibly did not happen at the exact same time that was going on in real time.

"So really, there isn't a lot of room in the world for two TUFs at one time and we wanted the first one to sit in there and plant, seat itself and we'll use the next one as a vehicle which I hear is wonderful and I've seen a couple. It's pretty raw and pretty intense and that will lead into TUF again which takes off on FX probably in September."

June? The TUF Brazil Finale is in June at UFC 147, won't that be a little bit of a spoiler?

Whoever is making the decisions over there needs to get karate chopped. Let's air a show called TUF Live and then play it on tape delay for west coast audiences.  Then, in order to avoid a conflict with that show, let's introduce TUF Brazil to American audiences after they already know the outcome of the entire thing. Is anyone over there an actual sports fan for Christ's sake?!

Talk about stupid, the contract fights will be happening in June so the winners will be crowned and they will just be starting to show the season on Fuel.Either do the season in the summer when TUF in the US isnt going on or just bite the bullet and if its going on during the US TUF so what, air them both.its not like you have to promote it on Fuel that hard, most dont have Fuel to even watch it so whats the big deal?
