The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil open casting call for Dec. 14 in Sao Paulo


Calling all (Brazilian) TUF guys!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently announced an open casting call for yet another installment of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) franchise on Dec. 14, 2011, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Lightweight (155-pounds) and middleweight (185-pounds) hopefuls are required to be over the age of 21 and have a professional fight record with a minimum of three fights (two of which must be wins).

Dress code would be that of a normal sparring session and candidates are expected to bring the appropriate gear and equipment.

TUF Brazil, filmed entirely in Portuguese and airing via Globo, will follow TUF 15 on FX, which will have its own tryouts on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada, following the TUF 14 weekend finale.

No coaches have been named for either season; however, expect TUF Brazil to (duh) feature a pair of the promotion's more popular Brazilian fighters.

If you live in Brazil and think you've got some skill, apply for the upcoming season of TUF Brazil by clicking here.
