Since it was announced that the first international edition of The Ultimate Fighter reality series would be taking place in Brazil fans have been wondering how they’ll be able to watch the season overseas.
Well, according to Dana White it’s all but official that the show will find a home on Fuel TV.
“Nobody knows this yet and it’s the first time it’s being told. And to be honest with you the deal isn’t 100 percent done yet, but I’m so confident it’s going to happen, I’ll give it to you guys,” White said on ESPN1100 radio in Las Vegas. “The Ultimate Fighter Brazil will air on Fuel TV. All this unique content that we’re doing in these other parts of the world, Fuel TV is going to take.”
White’s being a little economical with the truth here – we reported way back in October that this was in the works, but nevertheless it’s good to hear that this is still the plan.
TUF: Brazil is all set to begin filming in Sau Paulo with Wandlerlei Silva and Vitor Belfort installed as coaches.
Unlike the upcoming TUF 15 season on FX this one won’t have a live format, but rather will stick to the tried and tested formula of previous editions of the long-running show and is expected to premiere on March 25th.
