And just like that ZUFFA has ensured every American MMA fan will avidly stay tuned to a reality show that will be communicated entirely in subtitles. Some of you managed to do it with the first season of TUF Brazil as it was streamed on a weekly basis through one of UFC’s official sites. That season managed to create a lot of Brazilian stars that have appeared on several UFC events televised from Brazil. Stars like the great…featherweight fighter guy that has a black belt in BJJ. Alright folks, the truth is the only international season of TUF I’ve ever seen was TUF Smashes, and that was friggin’ fantastic. The entire Portuguese-to-English subtitle thing is just entirely too difficult of an obstacle to overcome in TUF Brazil. I like my reality shows obtaining as little of my mind as possible — the more I have to think, the higher the probability that I will realize I’m throwing my life away viewing scripted television.
However now that it’s been announced that Chael Sonnen will coach a Brazilian team opposite Wanderlei Silva in the third season of TUF Brazil, that should give all of you non-Portugese speaking MMA fans a little bit more incentive to watch TUF Brazil 3. Check out the official announcement from FOX Sports 1 below and props to AFrontKicktotheFace for the +100 news tip.
