The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America will air on FOX Deportes starting August 25 with head coaches Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum leading bantamweights and featherweights. Velasquez and Werdum will meet for the UFC heavyweight title later this year from Mexico.
“We are excited to be the exclusive Spanish-language broadcast partner for The Ultimate Fighter Latin America in the United States,” said Carlos Sanchez, EVP and GM of FOX Deportes. “We know how important the Latino community is to UFC and are pleased to be able to offer a platform to engage this fast-growing demographic.”
The series was filmed in Las Vegas earlier this year with Velasquez coaching eight Mexican fighters and Werdum leading eight from Argentina, Bolivia, Columbia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Panama. Previous reports also had the season airing on UFC Fight Pass.
