While Brazil’s Globo television network just broadcast the very first episode of TUF Brazil this Sunday, the US cable network FX is still going through the final preparations before airing TUF 15. The coaches for this season of “The Ultimate Fighter” are brawny bantamweights Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, who will face off in the season finale.
Dominick is the current champion of the UFC bantamweight division, and he generally does his gentle-art work with Lloyd Irvin.
