  1. So who are the guys that fights between Nog/Struve and lil nog/Shogun without wiki pages? And will it be a longer event? Air time wise

    i'd imagine both heavyweight fights and the main event will be fairly short lived contests. i don't know if they've planned more events but they know the main event is a sub <1 minute fight so can fit more into the same time no problem

    Dileno Lopes could set a new record by being the first person to win TUF after losing in a previous season of TUF. (Lopes was eliminated by TUF Brazil 1 winner Rony Jason in the opening round of TUF Brazil 1.)


    TUF Brazil 4 was actually a decent season. All 3 of Bruno Korea's fights are must watches. Although, imo, Miranda's TUF Brazil 3 run was the most entertaining ever. You just can't top walk-away headkick KO's.

    A lot of fighters are making their UFC debut on this card.

    Not worth a buy imo. Should be a fight night card.

    Should be a no contest for holding the cage when he landed the KO.

    The TUF Brazil fights should be on the prelims. 10pm start time for 7 fights. Pfft.

    Not sure if trolling.

    The current prelims have:

    Neil Magny (TUF 16 Semifinalist)
    Nordine Taleb (Appeared on both TUF 19 and TUF Nations, losing in the opening round in both)
    Warlley Alves (TUF Brazil 3 Winner)
    Vitor Miranda (TUF Brazil 3 runnerup)
    Clint Hester (TUF 17 loser at round of 16)
    Hugo Viana (TUF Brazil 1 semifinalist)
    Guido Cannetti (Lost twice on TUF Latin America)


    Literally this entire card is full of TUF'ers. What makes the guys fighting for the TUF 4 title any less deserving of a main card slot than all these TUF'ers on the prelims?

    I would agree though that they should have done it like UFC 180 (TUF Latin America finals on the prelims), versus UFC 147 (TUF Brazil 1 finals on the main card.)

    Few enough people in the U.S. care enough about the U.S. TUF, the finals are never on PPV here, it seems stupid to put TUF Brazil fights on a PPV main card. People on here are like, who is this? Much less casual fans at home.

    What are you talking about? Neil Magny is on a 7 fight win streak competeting against the #6 ranked welterweight Demaia Maia. The TUF Finals are much less deserving.

    I'd even prefer undefeated TUF winner Warlley Alves, who just beat Alan Jouban, and is now facing Nordine on a 3 fight UFC win streak.

    And neither Alves nor Taleb have fought on a PPV main card before. They're as unknown to casual fans as the TUF 4 Brazil finalists.

    Hell, for all of Magny's success, he's never fought on a PPV main card either. He's still a nobody to casuals.

    Magny got the TJ Grant treatment.

    This is basically a mixture of a fightnight/tuf finale with a shitty title match tacked on and called a ppv.

    Because its quantity not the quality of fights. UFC knows its a shit card and trying to make up for it

    Just cause Magny hasin't been on PPV yet, doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be. And Demain Maia has been on PPV a bunch, and main evented several shows (including his last fight).

    It's a much more deserving main card fight.

    lol @ comparing magny to some tuf finalists.
    maia magny is way more deserving. Even the zuffa brass know that. they always put one decent fight on the prelims to get some viewers.
