SAO PAULO, Brazil -- The UFC will make four more trips to Brazil in 2014.

Grace Tourinho, managing director of the promotion in Brazil, announced at The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 Finale card post-fight press conference that the Octagon will return to the country in September, October, November and December.

The only card with a date and location officially announced was the Fight Night event in Brasilia on Sept. 13, as MMAFighting.com first reported in May. According to sources, UFC 179 takes place in Rio de Janeiro on Oct. 25, but that was not officially announced yet.

"We will have a lot of events this year," Tourinho said. "The next one will be at the Nilson Nelson gymnasium in Brasilia on Sept. 13 and I will see you all there."

According to Tourinho, the UFC plans to do another season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil in 2015.

"We believe that we will do a TUF season every year," she said. "That’s how we bring new athletes to the promotion."
