The season debut of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" is just five days away.

UFC officials confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the first international edition of the UFC's long-running reality series will stream Sunday on TUF.tv with subtitles.

Additionally, the matchups are set for the show's elimination round of fights.

"TUF: Brazil," which 16 featherweight and 16 middleweight fighters from Brazil, is currently in production in the South American country. Unlike the new live season in the U.S., the Brazil version – which features Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort as coaches – is taped and pre-packaged.

The first episode of "TUF: Brazil" debuts Sunday evening on Globo following "Big Brother" in Brazil. The start time will fluctuate slightly from week to week due to the reality show, but UFC officials said it'll stream on TUF.tv each week at 11:30 p.m. ET (8:30 p.m. PT).

Additionally, FUEL TV will air the series at some point, but no dates or airtimes have been confirmed. It's now expected to air later this spring or summer...

Horrible idea, imo. By then, I'll know the results and will have zero desire to watch. I'm guessing I won't be alone.

I'm in! Hot damn I am excited. I had no idea this season/series would be starting so soon!

I do agree with Fleek though. This is five days away and we don't even have a programming schedule? That's a bad job by Zuffa. I'll DVR the show just to try and bolster ratings. But IMO, you have to figure the people that would be interested in watching TUF Brasil on FUEL are the same people who are going to be streaming the show on Sundays.

This makes less sense than having to wait three months for the WSOP Main Event final table.

No, thanks. I'd rather *not* fall asleep behind the wheel on my way to work Monday morning.
