For hardcore MMA lovers outside of Brazil, TUF Brasil will begin broadcasting this Sunday evening via stream on TUF.TV. The show will feature coaches Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort working with featherweights and middleweights from Brazil. It is the first international season of TUF and will stick with the previous setting to determine champions in each weight class.
It is expected that the show will be available for viewing on FUEL TV later this spring or summer. It will air online each Sunday at 11:30 p.m. ET.
