The first international season of The Ultimate Fighter is set to begin in March, as Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will lead their respective teams in TUF: Brazil. The show will be televised by Globo in Brazil and stream on UFC.com, while rumors of FUEL TV broadcasting in North American seem unclear at this time.
Instead of the usual season finale, Silva and Belfort will meet at UFC 147 on pay-per-view, along with the tournament finals in the featherweight and middleweight divisions. The headliner of the June card is expected to feature Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight crown in Brazil.
Check out the video below for the show, which will begin on March 25.
