Another UFC event held on Brazilian soil, but this time with a special flavor.

Besides being the first one taking place in the country’s Northeast, featuring fighters hailing from that region, TUF Brazil 2 Finale, held at Paulo Sarasate Gymnasium, in Fortaleza, goes down as the first ever UFC installment with 100 percent of Brazilian wins.

With 12 fights on the card and only five bouts between two Brazilians, all other seven went to Brazilian fighters. More than once before, this almost happened, with just one or two Brazilians losing out of several bouts, but this time it’s the real deal.  Check out below which local warriors defeated foreigners at TUF Brazil 2 Finale.

Main card

Erick Silva caught Jason High in a reverse triangle at 1min11s of R1
Daniel Sarafian subbed Eddie Mendez via katagatame at 2min20s of R1
