UFC president Dana White, coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen were very critical of the production team of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 in 2014, and the UFC decided to change a few things for the next season of the reality show.
During tryouts in Rio de Janeiro on Monday, UFC announced that the filming of the fourth season will take place out of Brazil for the first time. Like in the TUF: Latin America season, the filming will take place in Las Vegas.
Dana White said at the UFC 179 post-fight press conference on Saturday night that they already chose the next coaches for TUF: Brazil 4, but can’t announce yet.
TUF: Brazil 4 will feature bantamweight and lightweight contestants. The previous seasons of the reality show in Brazil crowned Rony Jason (featherweight), Cezar Ferreira (middleweight), Leonardo Santos (welterweight), Warlley Alves (middleweight) and Antonio Carlos Junior (heavyweight).
