Those 32 will fight in Brazil. Then the remaining eight lightweights and eight bantamweights will then be sequestered in a fighter's house, in Vegas.</p>
“We just found it’s an easier way to streamline the process for us,” said Dan Farmer, producer for “The Ultimate Fighter” International, to John Morgan for MMAJunkie. “It’s where our headquarters are. We have a full production company that’s been doing it for over 20 seasons, and it just allows us to consolidate our operations. We’re able to involve Dana White more.
“We just think it’s going to lead to a better season because we have that whole dynamic going and just the resources we’ll have.”
“We’re going to get the fighters out and around Las Vegas and really capture the experience and profile what a great destination las Vegas can be and the fact that it is the ‘Fight Capital of the World. I also have a special little twist that I’ve added into the format of the show. I know a lot of people have been asking for some format changes, so we’ve made a little minor adjustment that’s going to make the fights a little more interesting.”
The six weeks of filming will begin in the first quarter of 2015, and will air on Globo on Sundays. The series gets an extraordinary 7 to 14 million viewers. TUF Brazil 4 also streams on UFC FIght Pass, with a minor delay.
