Ice Cold Igors Right Hand - 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?

NorthFromHere - 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.

Correction: No one here in Brazil gives a crap about it either.

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

High ratings means more ppl watching and getting into the sport; more exposure. Phone Post 3.0

But are you sure that having Fedor as a coach would make a huge difference in ratings (on Russian TV?)

I'm not sure how big of a star he really is in Russia.

PSSH!

Without your giant boot and your aggressive PM,
who will challenge the might of the Great White North?!

WHO, I SAY?!
You're trying to duck us and make babies with Russia coz we box like kangaroos and roll like crocodiles Phone Post

Duck?

We get road work with deer.
Grabble with bears.
Do laps with loons.
Eat trees with beavers.
bed down for the night with grizzled lumberjacks...
(Best to forget about the last point made)

And besides, our heads open 100% when we talk,
so we could avoid any punch you and your gang of UnderDowns could throw.

We also all can throw superman punches and wear tight bicycle shorts which show off our lovely Canadian bottoms.

Come at me, you sun-tanned, sandal-wearing cad!
En garde!

SmellyBelly - 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.
Well the tuf format is going to become a International amateur tournament, and when the U.S.A. fights another country I bet we'll see a lot of interest. Phone Post

I'd totally watch Canada vs Russia. We have a great international hockey history against them that made for great sports entertainment.

I don't follow ratings closely but yes - the first one had incredible ratings and the second season seems to be just slightly behind it.

Still... just like american TUF, most old school fans really don't give much attention to it.

Obviously I can't speak for anyone, but as a brazilian fan who loves UFC since day one... I don't like TUF franchise for years now and I feel exactly the same about TUF Brazil - I don't care about it.

country vs country themes add no extra interest to TUF for me.

Course, TUF jumped the shark years ago.

Thanks for the clarification. I can't blame them. TUF Brazil is basically an extended product placement commercial with bunch of grown ass men crying all the time

I'm from Australia and unfortunately he's right, oz needs to develop some more talent before getting in to another country vs country show. I have to say that a lot of the fights on the smashes were borderline embarrassing to watch but then the Brits chosen for that show weren't much better tbh. The only decent Aussie won his field and let's be honest Colton is going to grapple fuck him next month. NZ actually has better talent than Aus. Phone Post 3.0

Chris27 - 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.

Japan vs Korea? I somehow don't think that will end well! Phone Post 3.0
