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.

Whenever Cub Swanson fights, there's a chance for an explosive finish. He won't have to hunt down his opponent on Saturday night, as Jeremy "Lil Heathen" Stephens is never one to back down from a brawl. Swanson has made it clear: He believes he deserves a shot at the title. He has already faced and been knocked out by current champion Jose Aldo, but that was in 2009 when both were in WEC. He wants his crack at the title soon, but Stephens stands in his way. 'Lil Heathen has been up and down over more

Saturday marks the 20th time a UFC event will feature two championship bouts. In other words, Dana White and Co. have once again pulled out all the stops to ensure the Fourth of July weekend is yet again a resounding success.

There are far bigger, more relevant fighters to main event a mixed martial arts card than James Te Huna and Nate "The Great" Marquardt. However, when it comes to sheer desperation, Te Huna and Marquardt should have plenty. Both men are on a losing streak and can ill-afford another loss. That dynamic could make the feature bout of UFC Fight Night 43 in New Zealand a smashing affair. This card will be exclusively broadcast Saturday, June 28, on UFC Fight Pass. Click here for details.

The UFC, in its ever-increasing attempts at expanding its brand around the globe, is running a lot of shows. This is an unarguable point. Whether or not you believe it is running too many events comes down to your own personal preference. Some of you can't get enough mixed martial arts, and you'll gladly watch two events in one day (like the UFC has planned for this Saturday). For some of you, two events in a single day—and four events in the span of eight days—is simply too much of a good thing more
