Fanboys are already well aware “The Ultimate Fighter 15” debuts March 9th on FX. However, just as a friendly reminder TUF will also be taking their talents internationally when the reality show hits Brazil just 16 days later.

Brazilian icons Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva (Pictured) will serve as opposing coaches in the series’ first non-American edition. A featherweight and middleweight will look to secure their futures by winning their respective tournaments and scoring six-figure UFC contracts.

The reality show makes its debut in Brazil on March 25th and will air every Sunday night on Globo.

Although an official announcement has yet to be made, North American fans should be able to watch ‘TUF: Brazil’ live either on FUEL TV (as Dana White suggested) or UFC.com (as Lorenzo Fertitta conveyed). Subtitles will be provided.
