Unlike “TUF: Live” that suffered from a decline in viewership numbers, “TUF: Brazil” has been enjoying a high ratings, since its launch last March 25, says President .

“TUF: Brazil” showcases MMA legends and Vitor Belfort as the show’s in-house coaches of opposing teams of featherweight and middleweight fighters.

The US timeslot for the “TUF: Brazil” is still being decided, as of this moment.
