Here's another article breaking down tonight's action:

Oh wow, this is the first time we've ever had concurrent seasons of The Ultimate Fighter. It's also the first season to not feature any Americans. We sometimes forget just how young this sport is and hopefully we have a whole raft of 'firsts' to look forward to, such as first backflip-kick knockout. Thinking about it, we might even see that in this season of The Ultimate Fighter. From past experience, I can't think of a single Brazilian on TUF that wasn't a face crushing badass, and now we're faced with the prospect of an entire season full of guys who will resemble Blanka from Street Fighter II in the cage. Something tells me this show will be full carefully translated expletives.

TUF: Brazil will air on a Sunday evening on Globo on Brazil but if you don't live in Brazil or speak Portuguese, then UFC will be streaming each week's episode on TUF.tv complete with subtitles at 11:30 ET/8:30 PT. In the first episode, Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort will get their first glimpse of the fighters as they compete to enter the house. Eight matches in the middleweight and featherweight division will decide the final sixteen contestants. If you sit and watch the elimination fights with a notepad, then you'll be interested in swotting up on the names below.

  • Middleweights
    • Leonardo Mafra Teixeira (5-0) vs. Samuel Trindade (6-1)
    • Daniel Sarafian (7-2) vs. Richardson Moreira (3-0)
    • Francisco Drinaldo (10-1) vs. Charles Maicon (8-1)
    • Delson Heleno (23-6) vs. Gilberto Galvao (19-4-1)
    • Sergio Moraes (6-1) vs. Thiago Rela (3-1)
    • Cezar Ferreira (4-2) vs. Gustavo Sampaio (5-1)
    • Joao Paulo de Souza (8-4) vs. Thiago de Oliveira Perpetuo (8-1-1)
    • Renee Forte (7-1) vs. Fabio Luiz Vital da Costa (9-0-1)
  • Featherweights
    • Alexandre Ramos (5-0) vs. Hugo Viana (5-0)
    • Giovanni da Silva Santos Jr. (10-1) vs. John Teixeira (13-0-1)
    • Marcos Vinicius Borges Pancini (19-3-1) vs. Pedro Nobre (10-0-1)
    • Rodrigo Damm (9-5) vs. Fabricio de Assis Costa da Silva (14-1)
    • Rony Mariano Bezerra (10-3) vs. Dileno Lopes (8-0)
    • Anistavio Medeiros (12-7) vs. Rafael Bueno (7-1)
    • Wagner Campos (11-3) vs. Fernando Duarte Guerra (10-1)
    • Godofredo Pepey (8-0) vs. Johnny Goncalves (4-0)
