ufc-on-fuel-tv-10-poster.jpgFORTALEZA, Brazil – It’s fight week again for the UFC, which heads to Brazil on Saturday for “UFC on FUEL TV 10: Nogueira vs. Werdum II.” Here’s the essential information for fight week.

START TIME: UFC on FUEL TV 10 takes place Saturday at Paulo Sarasate Arena, where the Brazilian city of Fortaleza plays host to the UFC for the first time. The night’s seven-bout preliminary card streams on Facebook and YouTube beginning at 4:45 p.m. ET/12:45 p.m. PT (5:45 p.m. BRT local time). FUEL TV airs the six-bout main card at 8 p.m. ET.

EVENT BACKGROUND: The event serves as the unofficial finale of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2.” However, unlike other seasons of the UFC’s reality show in which numerous cast members fill out the undercard, only finalists William Macario and Leo Santos were given fights. They meet in the co-headliner before a main event between heavyweights and “TUF: Brazil 2? head coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum. Nogueira won the duo’s first meeting via unanimous decision at a 2006 PRIDE event. (Watch the Nogueira vs. Werdum I fight video.)

ON SITE: Lead staff reporter John Morgan is on site in Brazil. Give him a follow on Twitter (@MMAjunkieJohn) for updates throughout fight week, including Wednesday’s community event. UFC fighters Glover Teixeira and Demian Maia, as well as octagon girl Camila Oliveira, join government officials in a tree-planting ceremony at Coco Park.

THURSDAY’S PRESS CONFERENCE/OPEN WORKOUTS: The UFC is combining the pre-event press conference and open workouts into one “media day,” though it’s closed to the public. Thursday’s session includes main-card fighters Nogueira, Werdum, Santos, Macario, Raphael Cavalcante and Thiago Silva. MMAjunkie.com will be on scene and providing full coverage throughout the day.

THURSDAY’S RADIO INTERVIEWS: Thursday’s edition of MMAjunkie.com Radio will feature a host of fighters from Saturday’s card. Tune in at noon ET. Daniel Sarafian, Jason High, Mike Wilkinson, Eddie Mendez and Anthony Smith are already booked for the show and will be calling in from Brazil.

FRIDAY’S WEIGH-INS: Friday’s weigh-ins take place at Paulo Sarasate Arena. You can watch a live video stream or get live text-only results beginning at 3 p.m. ET. We’ll also have a video replay and full photo gallery available afterward.

SATURDAY’S EVENT: Join us at 4:45 p.m. ET for UFC on FUEL TV 10 play-by-play and live results. You can also discuss the event in our discussion thread. The night’s post-fight press conference isn’t streaming live, but we’ll have full post-event coverage throughout the night.
