TUF: "Brazil 2" will feature coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum, competing against each other to build up the season's next international MMA talent. In a tournament format, the 28 fighters will compete for one of the two coaches, with the hopes of a UFC contract on the horizon.

It is expected that the two coaches, Nogueira and Werdum, will rematch on the same night as the tournament finale in the UFC on FUEL TV 10 main event, which is scheduled to take place at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Brazil, on June 8, 2013.

The first season of TUF Brazil produced winner Rony Jason, who went through Godofredo Castro in the finals to become the most notable original TUF: "Brazil" winner. The inaugural Brazilian season was filled with talent, and hopefully, the sophomore effort can provide the same level of fighters ... if not better.
