For all you Brazilian UFC fans (and I know there’s a ton of you), some good news came out Monday regarding “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.” Fuel TV’s Executive VP and General Manager George Greenberg, made the announcement that TUF: Brazil we begin replaying on Fuel TV this June.
So why the wait you ask? Greenberg stated that they did not want TUF: Brazil to interfere with this season of TUF 15 on Fuel Tv’s sister channel of FX. Here’s what Greenberg had to say on the plans:
“We’re probably going to air it in June and the reason why we’re not airing it simultaneously is because we don’t want to take any air out of the room promotionally for TUF on FX. TUF on Brazil is something that is airing in real time in Brazil and if you haven’t seen it hear, that just means you haven’t seen it here. In the wonderful world of time-shifting, as soon as TUF on FX is done, then we will premier TUF Brazil which will be a great promotional tool to lead into the next TUF on FX and it will be a constant give and a go between a series that is happening right here and now and a series that possibly did not happen at the exact same time that was going on in real time. So really, there isn’t a lot of room in the world for two TUFs at one time and we wanted the first one to sit in there and plant, seat itself and we’ll use the next one as a vehicle which I hear is wonderful and I’ve seen a couple. It’s pretty raw and pretty intense and that will lead into TUF again which takes off on FX probably in September.”
