Fuel TV is fast becoming “UFC TV” as the sports network continues to fill up with programming related to the UFC and MMA in general. Already highlighted by UFC Tonight, live events, Best of PRIDE, and more, word has now surfaced indicating the channel will also host TUF Brasil as well when the show airs later this year.
Little other information was provided in terms of specific times/dates but regardless it means hardcore MMA fans will be tuning in weekly at some point in hopes of getting a glimpse at the next great Brazilian talent.
TUF Brasil will feature teams of featherweights and middleweights competing in respective tournaments with the hope of winning a UFC contract and the honor of being the first TUF Brasil champion. Legendary middleweights Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will serve as coaches and eventually face off after the season concludes.
