'TUF: Brazil' premiere streams Sunday at 11:30 p.m. ET, elimination-round matchups set
(mmajunkie.com)
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...

'The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil' cast unveiled with 32 featherweights and middleweights
(mmajunkie.com)
The fighters competing in the first-ever international edition of "The Ultimate Fighter" have been revealed. "TUF: Brazil," which features UFC notables Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva as coaches, streams in the U.S. on UFC.com (simultaneously as it debuts March 25 in Brazil on Globo) and airs on FUEL TV (air times TBA). A total of 32 featherweights and middleweights take part in the competition-reality series, the winners of which earn UFC contracts. As with the recently debuted 15th U.S. edition of the reality show – "TUF: Live," which debuted this past Friday on U.S. – "TUF: Brazil" features an elimination round of fights. All winners of the those fights become official cast members. They then compete in the two tournaments, which are the focus of the reality show's regular-season run. While most of the fighters are veterans of the Brazilian scene and largely undiscovered talent (in North America), there are a few notables, including featherweight Rodrigo Damm, a former Strikeforce and World Victory Road/Sengoku fighter, and 10-time IFL veteran Delson Heleno. However, notable Hacran Dias (20-1), one of the country's top prospects, isn't on the list. The full list of "TUF: Brazil" fighters (courtesy globoesporte.com) includes: Featherweights Alexandre Ramos (5-0) Rodrigo Damm (9-5) Rony Mariano Bezerra (10-3) Godofredo Pepey (8-0) Marcos Vinicius Borges Pancini (19-3-1) Medeiros Anistavio (12-7) Johnny Goncalves (4-0) Medeiros Anistavio (5-0) Fernando Duarte Guerra (10-1) John Teixeira (13-0-1) Rafael Bueno (7-1) Wagner Campos (11-3) Pedro Nobre (10-0-1) Fabricio de Assis Costa da Silva (14-1) Dileno Lopes (8-0) Giovanni da Silva Santos Jr. (10-1) Middleweights Sergio Moraes (6-1) Cezar Ferreira (4-2) Leonardo Mafra Teixeira (5-0) Daniel Sarafian (7-2) Gustavo Sampaio (5-1) Richardson Moreira (3-0) Fabio Luiz Vital da Costa (9-0-1) Renee Forte (7-1) Joao Paulo de Souza (8-4) Francisco Drinaldo (10-1) Thiago Rela (3-1) Charles Maicon (8-1) Gilberto Galvao (19-4-1) Thiago de Oliveira Perpetuo (8-1-1) Samuel Trindade (6-1) Delson Heleno (23-6)

Dana White on 'The Ultimate Fighter: Live' season debut: 'It was perfect'
(mmajunkie.com)
From the live format to the new broadcaster partner to the surprise one-round fights, Friday's season debut of "The Ultimate Fighter: Live" couldn't have gone any better. That's according to Dana White. The UFC president spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) after the two-and-a-half-hour season debut, which included 16 live elimination-round fights on FX. "Going into this thing ... you're always nervous when you do something new and do something different," he told MMAjunkie.com. "We worked long and hard on this show to make sure this came off with no hitches. I'm very happy to with how it came off. It was perfect. Everything went according to plan. There were literally no hiccups whatsoever. "It's not easy doing this live. Nobody's even done this before, and it could have gone any more perfect." MMAjunkie.com was on scene for the debut, which took place at the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas. After 14 taped seasons on Spike TV, the UFC's long-running reality series went to a live format with its move to the FOX-owned FX. With UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and fellow headliner Urijah Faber on hand to scout for next week's team selections, White said they were treated to a stellar night of fights...

Cast members come from the U.S., England, Northern Ireland and Brazil.

Memorable Jamie Yager has army in tow for tonight's Superior Cage Combat 4 event
(mmajunkie.com)
Fight for a while at the professional level, and your reasons for doing it change. Jamie Yager (5-2) has been chewed up and spit out by the promotional machine behind UFC parent company Zuffa. Still, to many, he's the only guy remembered from his season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series. That's worth something. So now, the plan is to merge notoriety with talent, and tonight, he attempts to put the latter on display when he meets Danny Davis Jr. (6-5-1) at Superior Cage Combat 4. The event takes place at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. "I got on the show based on my looks and my natural, God-given talent and abilities, and I was able to portray a good thing to get on the show," Yager told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "But that's only going to get you so far."

Ed Herman says Silva is ducking Sonnen
(outsidethering.net)
“Of course, Silva is ducking Sonnen. Why would he want to fight Chael again? He got lucky by catching Chael in that triangle arm-bar the first time,” I disagree...I'm taking Silva by KO as he'll surely work is TD defense and knock him out...especially considering how he looked against Bisping

Ed had a recent interview with MMA 24/7 radio and discussed his time on TUF. In his interview, Ed expressed his displeasure with being on Ken Shamrock's team saying although he and his coaches were nice, they were not good coaches and his team was often stood up by Shamrock.

Ed also answered several fan submitted questions on the show. Ed's interview starts at the 32 minute mark in the podcast.

Vitor Belfor and Wanderlei Silva named coaches of TUF: Brazil
(mmajunkie.com)
Brazilian sluggers Vitor Belfort (20-9 MMA, 9-5 UFC) and Wanderlei Silva (34-11-1 MMA, 4-6 UFC) will serve as opposing coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil." UFC president Dana White today announced the selections during a pre-UFC 142 press conference in Rio de Janeiro. The two will coach opposing teams on the first-ever international edition of "TUF," which in March debuts on Globo, and will oppose each other following the conclusion of the series. Belfort will still face Anthony Johnson at January's UFC 134 event. "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" will be produced by Brazilian firm Floresta and air as part of the UFC's broadcast deal with Globo. The series is expected to feature 12 taped episodes in addition to a live finale. While FUEL TV is expected to air the show in the U.S., UFC president Dana White has yet to officially announce a stateside broadcast partner.

TUF 14 Finale medical suspensions: Miller possibly out six months with broken nose
(mmajunkie.com)
Punches both invited and uninvited took a toll on "The Ultimate Fighter 14" coach Jason "Mayhem" Miller, and he could be suspended for up to six months unless cleared by a doctor. The Nevada State Athletic Commission today released a list of medical suspensions following The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale, which took place this past Saturday at The Pearl and The Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The event's main card aired live on Spike TV while preliminary-card bouts streamed on Facebook. In the event's headliner, Miller may have suffered a fractured nose before he was stopped in the third round of the five-round non-title fight by opposing "TUF 14" coach Michael Bisping, who walked away with a light suspension. A noticeable hematoma near Bisping's eye, which likely was the result of a losing first round with Miller, netted him a term of less than a month. In other notable suspensions, "TUF 14" winner Diego Brandao also is out for up to six months unless he can get his left hand and jaw cleared by an oral maxial-facial doctor. Dennis Bermudez, who dropped Brandao with a right hand in the first round before falling prey to an armbar, did not suffer any serious damage to his left arm despite hyperextending it prior to the fight, as he told MMAjunkie.com.

With his suspension likely to end any day now, Nate Marquardt is the biggest name in MMA's free agent market. One possible landing spot could be Bellator Fighting Championships, where middleweight champion Hector Lombard has repeatedly pleaded for a fight with Marquardt. Officially, the company will not comment on any interest in Marquardt just yet, but in a recent interview with Sherdog, Lombard claimed that Marquardt was offered an immediate title match against him and declined.
