UFC Announces The Ultimate Fighter: Latinoamerica
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.13.2014

The UFC is taking The Ultimate Fighter into another territory. The promotion announced via press release (via MMAFighting) that they are launching The Ultimate Fighter: Latinoamerica, with filming set to begin in the Spring and talent recruitment imminent.

The show will cover nineteen Latin America countries including Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela. Filming will take place at the Ultimate Fighting Training Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Applicants must be between twenty-one and thirty-four, speak Spanish and have three professional fights to their career that are provable by public record. There is no weight class reportedly set; prospective cast members can apply here.

Dana White said in the announcement, "Latin America has become an enormous market for the UFC and we are excited to take it to the next level with The Ultimate Fighter. After the success of launching the UFC Network and the tremendous growth of our fan base, our focus now consists in finding and developing the best talent in the market. We want to find the next star, the next fighter that will do what Anderson Silva did for Brazil. We want to offer the fans a homegrown hero."

Coaches have not yet been named.
