Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

‘TUF Brazil’ Roster Features Rodrigo Damm, Delson Heleno, 30 Other Dudes

(But there *will* be subtitles at some point, right?)

The full cast of 16 featherweights and 16 middleweights for the first international edition of The Ultimate Fighter has just been released. I’m not as well-versed in the Brazilian prospect scene as I should be, but two names definitely jump out here: Rodrigo Damm, the Sengoku/Strikeforce veteran (and brother of Carina), and former IFL standout Delson Helano, who has won 10 of his last 11 fights.

You can check out the full cast list after the jump. TUF Brazil is set for a March 25th debut on the Globo channel in Brazil, and will also be streamed on and broadcast on FUEL via tape-delay. Tune in, and find out which two fighters will be buying their mothers a house

CP planning on doing a weekly recap of this? or at least showing the highlights of any fights? My cable provider is just as likely to add FUEL to my line-up for the replays as they are to add the Globo channel for the real show.
