Be careful what you wish for!
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is currently holding court at the Windsor Barra Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, just two days removed from the highly-anticipated rematch between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes at UFC 179 (results here).
Why hang around?
The mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion is hoping to find its next bantamweight and lightweight reality stars, as UFC is holding open tryouts for season four of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil," which will feature both 135 and 155-pound contestants.
600+ fighters show up for TUF Brazil tryouts. Yikes. pic.twitter.com/yNKT0f7Ee4— Sean Shelby (@seanshelby) October 27, 2014
Pretty good turnout, to say the least.
The show is scheduled to premiere in March 2015 and will air in Brazil (on Globo), while the rest of the world will have to subscribe to UFC Fight Pass in order to view. No possible coaches have been mentioned at this time.
