If you thought past seasons of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil" were barely one step above The Blair Witch Project in terms of production values; well, you're not alone. That's why the international franchise is headed back to Las Vegas, Nevada, for season four.
Dan Farmer, producer for TUF International, talks to MMA Junkie:
"We just found it's an easier way to streamline the process for us. It's where our headquarters are. We have a full production company that's been doing it for over 20 seasons, and it just allows us to consolidate our operations. We're able to involve Dana White more. We just think it's going to lead to a better season because we have that whole dynamic going and just the resources we'll have."
TUF: "Latin America" was also filmed in "Sin City."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is hoping to find its next bantamweight and lightweight reality stars, holding open tryouts for season four earlier this week in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And considering over 600 applicants showed up to audition, I'd imagine producers will have their pick of the litter.
Now, about those coaching slots...
