Depois do anúncio da transmissão das lutas do UFC pela Rede Globo, mais uma novidade promete agitar o mercado do MMA nacional: o mês de março de 2012 marcará a estreia do reality TUF (The Ultimate Fighter) no Brasil.

Os protagonistas serão os lutadores Vitor Belfort e Anderson Silva, que já se enfrentaram no UFC 127, e comandarão duas equipes de lutadores no reality.

As inscrições serão abertas nas próximas semanas, mas a produção contará, inclusive, com olheiros que buscarão nas academias de lutas de todo país alguns participantes para o programa.

Didn't they just fight.

I'd rather see Sonnen vs Silva or Henderson vs Silva.

This is for TUF that airs exclusively in Brazil I believe. Belfort is insanely popular there, so it makes sense to help them keep developing Brazil as a major market.

Sucks that this would mean Sonnen has to wait if it's true. Maybe They always have that fight to throw on FOX if they choose to next year.

I really hope the UFC isnt giving Vitor a 2nd title shot after he was just setup to fight Cung Le

Hmm. But I could see Sonnon vs Silva doing mega ratings with Sonnons ugly American Heel persona. That just makes more sense to me.

I think Vitor/Silva is a BAD BAD BAD idea for a coach.

Vitor hasn't done anything since being dominated by Silva to justify him fighting for a title.
