The first ever international edition of The Ultimate Fighter reality series premieres tonight. The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil will air in Brazil on Globo however it will be streaming in North America on TUF.TV at 9pm PT / 12am ET. TUF: Brazil will not be live like the TUF Live: Team Cruz vs. Team Faber, instead it will bring back the old format of being taped like the previous 14 seasons.

Coached by UFC vets Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort, 16 featherweights and 16 middleweight fighters will step into the Octagon right away with the elimination round fights. The field of 32 fighters will be cut down to the 16 (8 featherweights & 8 middleweights) who will enter the house and compete to become “the next Ultimate Fighter”.
