"We do anticipate another season (which will air in March)," said UFC managing director of international business Marshall Zelaznik. "It's certain that we'll do it."

"Brazil is quickly becoming the No. 1 market for the UFC when it comes to fan support," Zelaznik said. "You're talking about 10 million people watching each week. We're No. 1 in the timeslot. The AB demographic is the most upscale demographic, and we're the highest-rated reality show in Brazil."

... “The next event that we will do (in Brazil) later in the year, will likely be in Rio,” said UFC managing director of international business Marshall Zelaznik on Thursday. “That would be in October.”

“And then for next year, we’re talking about potentially twice as many events in Brazil, if not more,” he added. “So you can expect that Bela Horizonte is in that mix along with all the other cities. We’re trying to bring the event to all of the country.”

TUF can do at least one season in Brazil for every weight class. At least three more seasons if they do two weight classes each time.

I wonder if they can find a way to cry more than this seasons cast did.

My guess would be

Also vs koch
Belfort vs stann

And if silva wins quickly and lombard wins

Silva vs lombard main event
