Everyone has wondered where the new ‘Ultimate Fighter’ in Brazil would air in the United States, but it appears we have our answer.

UFC President Dana White revealed last week when speaking to ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas that the new TUF Brazil that begins filming later this year will likely end up on Fuel TV in America.

“The deal isn’t 100-percent done yet, but I’m so confident it’s going to happen I’ll give it to you guys. ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Brazil will air on Fuel TV,” said White.

The UFC and their new TV partners at Fox have promised tons of new original content heading to Fuel TV, and this just looks to be the latest.

The ‘Ultimate Fighter’ Brazil will features coaches Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva as they work with a team of fighters from their native country on the show.

This will mark the first international version of the long running reality show, and another new program for Fuel TV.

White also confirmed that virtually all of their unique worldwide content will likely air on Fuel TV in the United States.

For quite some time, White has said that much of the programming they do worldwide like the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ could end up as some sort of online format, but now with their new television partners at Fox they have a network to work with instead.

    This is the only thing keeping me interested in the UFC.
    I watched the show religiously.
    But, once they put Brock as a coach, I stopped watching the show entirely.
    I am a die hard Wanderlei fan for life.
    Met him at the Boston expo.
    And loved how the vintage Wand destroyed Cung Le 🙂
    Wand isn’t the same animal as before.
    But, I will be watching every episode of this series…. And if the coaches fight at the end.
    I am looking for Wanderlei to avenge his loss to Belfort.
    I would pay $65 bucks just to see them fight again.
    I’d love to see wand fight in Japan again as well as in Brazil.
    But. Yeah. For having most of, if not all of the best fighters in the world.
    The UFC sure puts on some garbage ass cards.
    I welcome this.
    I welcome Reem.
    And yeah.
    Give Hendo a crack at Jon Bones Jones.
    And this will be a good year for mma.
