Filming of the TUF Brazil reality show is going full steam. As is the tradition, in the final episode of the show, the coaches of the two teams face off, and that’s just what Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva are set to do, in one of the most long-awaited rematches of all times.
The showdown between the two will likely be the main event, as it is rumored that the rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen will no longer be in Brazil.
The final of the reality show was planned for a soccer stadium in São Paulo—Pacaembu Stadium—, but the idea was nixed. When queried about the venue for the TUF final, at the post UFC 144 press conference, Dana White said it had yet to be determined.
“We’re working on it.”
The mystery continues…
Still at the press conference, Quinton Jackson guaranteed he will not be retiring, even after losing to Ryan Bader. And the pressure for featherweight champion José Aldo to square of with former lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar continues, Dana White says he’s all for it. Now Ben Henderson looks set to have his maiden title defense against the last man to beat him, Anthony Pettis. White was pleased with the promotion’s return to Japan.
