The Ultimate Fighter has been a stalwart of the UFC in the United States. It was once the savior of the promotion and has found its way through 15 seasons.

This year, the UFC finally launched its first international flavor of the reality series, although it wasn’t in the country that most had initially expected.

Most signs over the past couple of years had pointed to Canada as a likely candidate for TUF’s first expansion, but the company instead launched it in Brazil.

The show has been massively successful, drawing a reported 12 million viewers in Brazil, according to UFC president Dana White. The finals of the series were held at UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin II on Saturday night in Belo Horizonte.

I doubt I will either but it will tap into some other talent pools. TUF Brazil had some nice talent, it will be nice to see what some other counties can produce in terms of legit fighters

I remember Dana saying something along the lines of a TUF World Cup. Could be interesting if that came to fruition, but would most likely be a logistical nightmare. I'm sure there is a winning format out there.

Awesome. So much better than normal TUF.
