The Ultimate Fighter Brazil Cast Unveiled

via www.5thround.com

The Ultimate Fighter Brazil kicks off in just a couple of a weeks, and the 32-man cast was announced today. The two weight classes will be featherweight and middleweight. There will be no live elimination round in the first episode or live fights each week (the whole thing is already taped), which is closer to the old TUF format. The show starts on March 25th on Globo in Brazil, and will be streamed on UFC.com at the same time. It will also air on Fuel, but exactly when has not been determined yet. The coaches will be Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva.

The roster includes a few familar names such as Rodrigo Damm and Delson Heleno, along with six prospects from the 2012 Bloody Elbow Scouting Report. Here is the list of contestants (via Globo):
