                    <p>The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 4 tryouts recently drew 600 hopefuls, that will be winnowed down to 16 lightweights and 16 bantamweights. Those 32 will fight in Brazil. Then the remaining eight lightweights and eight bantamweights will then be sequestered in a fighter&#39;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.

that is quite possibly the stupidest thing i've ever heard

Seems like it would be easier to record and keep tabs of the show if it's right in Vegas. Plus, it's easier for guess fighters to stop by. Plus Dana and the boys can have a bigger part also without flying from the headquarters to Brazil every other day

There doing it now for TUF Latin America and it's been great. I agree with them that it has a lot of upsides. I do and have always enjoyed watching the TUF internationals for the foreign scenery, housing, food... It's always a cool insight to another place. But I have been really enjoying this Season of TUF under the planned format for TUF Brazil 4 ... So all in all I think it's a good move.

If there looking to showcase/advertise Vegas as a tourist destination, would be cool if they threw in a Trip for the family/friends of the winners of each Voted on Performance Bonus of the Season...go all out, 5 star .... then do a follow up piece on the winners vacation. Or let the people in the house vote for one person in the houses family to get the trip/package...but they can't vote for them self... Would make for some EPIC Feelgood TV.

Anyways... Sry for Ramble... Not looking for a job or am I Schill... But if anyone at fox liked this idea...I GOT MORE lol Phone Post 3.0

Production ease is not TUF's  main problem
