UFC announced that Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva would be the two coaches for the first season of The Ultimate Fighter series from Brazil.
White, Joe Silva and others were in Brazil today to both make the announcement and look at fighters for the house. The show will air on Globo, a major network in Brazil and be structured like TUF had been in the U.S. with a taped reality show, a live final followed by a match between the two coaches.
Belfort beat Silva in 1998 in less than one minute at UFC's first show in Brazil.
