The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): 'Brazil 3' set for UFC 'Fight Pass' debut on March 9

USA TODAY Sports

In addition to airing the entire series, UFC Fight Pass will also take subscribers behind the scenes with regular updates from coach Chael Sonnen.

Great news for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans living outside of Brazil.

Well, sort of.

That depends on whether or not you took the plunge and signed up for the "Fight Pass" network, which will become the new home for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil 3," beginning Sunday, March 9, 2014 at midnight ET, and then continuing every Sunday after that (at the same time) until the season finale.

TUF: "Brazil 3" is expected to crown tournament champions in both the middleweight and heavyweight divisions, under the leadership of light heavyweight coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva, who will collide later this year on a fight card to be named.

"I don't quite know what to make of it down here," said Sonnen in today's press release. "Wanderlei has already been an experience, to say the least. He's like a cartoon character, he gets angry and runs out of words and steam starts to come out of his ears. He's a caveman. But I feel sorry for him so I'm helping him get to where he wants to go - retirement."

Here's a sneak peek of what is expected to be an "insane" season.

Color me intrigued.
