When UFC President Dana White first said he wanted to do multiple versions of The Ultimate Fighter all over the world there weren’t a lot of people who believed he’d follow through on the plan with many even scoffing at the idea. Now, with TUF 16 in full swing in the United States, TUF 17 filming started, TUF: UK vs. Australia in the books, plans for a show in India, and the first TUF Brasil season already in the rear-view mirror, it’s clear White wasn’t kidding.

Following up on the ratings bonanza of its initial run, it’s time for TUF Brasil 2 where it appears Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum have been tapped to coach. A number of their countrymen had been campaigning for the slots including Mauricio Rua and Lyoto Machida, but as of right now it sounds like the heavyweights will be running this season.

According to SporTV, both Nogueira (34”“7”“1, 1nc) and Werdum (16-5-1) have verbally agreed to head a respective squad. Although the UFC hasn’t officially announced their involvement, it has been stated that filming is set to begin in early January. The show is set to feature sixteen welterweights plucked from nearly 300 who tried out.

Nogueira Wants Fights with Top 10 Foes

Both fighters have been affiliated with past seasons of the reality series. Nogueira was the head coach on TUF 8, while Werdum was an assistant coach for Wanderlei Silva on the last season of TUF Brasil.

Werdum is riding a two-fight winning streak with the last one coming at UFC 147 against Mike Russow. Likewise, Nogueira is fresh off of his win over Dave Herman earlier this month who he submitted in the second round of their co-headlining rumble. They are expected to fight in Summer 2013 once the show wraps.
