The show is then expected to air each week in the Sunday-night timeslot.

The show taped in Brazil, and the fighters speak Portuguese, though English subtitles are provided for U.S. audiences.

IMO a really bad move for UFC and MMA... This channel is aimed at a new audience for MMA which for most part Boo just for the sake of it... TUF Brazil has been the worst TUF ever IMO... The fights have been really, really poor regardless of how Wanderlei and Vitor tell you how everyone of there fighters are warriors they have been mediocre at best.I am not a action junkie for fights but the output of the fighters involved feels like they are playing really safe or they are just not skilled enough to be in the UFC, either way it makes for poor viewing. For even the more experienced MMMA fan this is not good enough.

I've been watching this on Mondays online; currently it has just finished episode 8. I can't say I'm overly impressed with the show. Some of the fights have been decent but nothing that stands out for me. The antics that go on in the house are not really grabbing my attention, something I enjoyed in the TUF houses in the US. The training facility in the warehouse is okay; has what they need however they don't show enough of the training. The rivalry between the two coaches is definitely there but more so for Wanderlei; he really hates Belfort. I'm not sure this is going to make for good TV if shown in the same format I'm watching now; would get boring fast.

This really should have aired sooner because just as it starts to pick up on FUEL TV, then the winners will already be determined at UFC 147.These international seasons of TUF are a great idea though. I just hope that for future seasons, the television broadcasts in the U.S. are better lined up with the international airings so that another situation like that doesn't happen.

^^ You're really getting your pitch down to a science. Four sentences. I'm impressed, yet whenever I read your posts now I keep hearing it through the words of someone with a very hoarse voice. Is that weird?

 this is the prefect type of programming for fuel, except it should have aired earlier... The main card fight nights should be moved to FX.  The FX and fox prelims are more than enough live event programming for Fuel.  Absorb SF into the UFC and move the sho-xtreme prelims to fuel as well and move the showtime main cards to FX. Fuel should cater to the hardcore fans...  FX should cater to the casual fans... Fox should cater to the mainstream fans. Right now it is all mixed up.

I think reshowing it is a pretty good idea, there were some great fights. It would give me another thing to watch every Sunday.

1. Familiarize yourself with the episodes results 2. Find a guillible friend who doesn't know it has aired elsewhere 3. Bet them you can guess the exact time a match will end 4. PROFIT!!!
