Give us the Russians! Australia is a prelim-level MMA country at best. Canada vs. Russia, winner takes on either USA or Brazil. It's only fair.

canada vs russia would be awesome...but they should broadcast it at the end of 2013...or a January special feature that finishes before Feb 7, 2014.

that way it would be just prior to the winter olympics in russia where usa vs canada vs russia in hockey will also be a feature.

They have to move into Russia first, if they do an event this year and it does well then they can look to do a Russian TUF in 2014 along with maybe Japan/Korea.

^Gets it. Canada vs. Russia would actually get the Canadian sports media talking about MMA outside the context of a GSP fight.

These country based TUFs are getting out of hand. TUF Brazil is going on right now and no one outside of Brazil gives a crap about it.

Isnt that the point? You do international TUF for those countries to care about, Brazil is watching TUF Brazil, thats what the show is designed for.

So they shouldnt do a TUF Brazil that gets a reported 10 million viewers a week because fans elsewhere dont care about it?

Why would anyone outside of Brazil give a crap?  And why should they?  And why should the UFC care?  They are trying to develop in Brazil, so they have a show on Brazilian TV, in Portuguese, targeted to Brazilian audience.  That seems to be the point, no?

I'd like to see them shake up the country vs. country concept and have 4 nations send a fighter in each of 4 set weight classes. Winners of each weight class get a shot against a UFC vet on the brink of being cut and the loser goes home. Phone Post

I always thought "nation vs nation" was a stupid concept because no country has an national MMA program. It is strictly individuals seeking out instruction from anywhere in the world and putting their game together.

there has never been a non-country based tuf...except maybe USA vs UK.


"regular" TUF is really American/Canadian TUF. nobody outside those countries caring.

You have a point but Russia actually does have a national MMA program now. They will crown the first National Champions this year I believe.

P.S. I gave a crap about TUF Brazil... last season. This season kinda sucks.

Missed this the first time. I spit up a little. It would be less funny in reality though because Quebec would probably win

If they have a TUF with a Russian team the coach of that team had better be Fedor!

Don't make him fight, don't even sign him if he isn't into it; the UFC would make BANK by simply having him on the show.

Would just be cool to see him coaching and the UFC finally acknowledging his legendary status in the sport. Phone Post 3.0

I don't think there are any plans for TUF Russia, but if there were... how would UFC "make BANK" by simply having Fedor on the show?

I thought the first season had very high ratings - is that not the case anymore?
