With only 1 million viewers per episode, the second season failed to repeat the success of the debut of the reality show in Brazil
While the second season runs in full power, the brazilian edition of The Ultimate Fighter will hardly have a season 3. According to brazilian newspaper Folha, the UFC’s reality show is suffering with its ratings and is not going to be renewed by Rede Globo.
With near 1-million viewers per episode, the season two of TUF Brazil don’t had the success of the first and is airing on 23h50 of Sundays. The second season has 16 welterweights in only one weight class and Minotauro Nogueira divides the coaching with Fabricio Werdum.
A huge team rivalry, lots of injuries and some boring fights is almost a trademark in the season. It’s a huge news for the brazilian MMA, with the sport losing its only weekly program in the biggest TV channels of Brazil. Alongside TUF Brazil, Rede Globo also shows 3 UFCs per year (usually Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo ones) and other channels like Bandeirantes, Record and RedeTV aren’t into the MMA world yet.
