Season 2 will feature lightweight (155 pounds) and welterweight (170 pounds) fighters.

All TUF Brasil 2 candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 35 and have a minimum of three professional mixed martial arts fights – holding a winning record (with verifiable records on mixedmartialarts.com and sherdog.com). Former UFC fighters are not eligible. Any and all costs associated with attending the tryouts are the sole responsibility of the candidate.

Registration begins at 7:00 AM BRT

Fighters will be required to grapple and hit pads and must bring appropriate gear – MMA gloves, hand wraps, mouth guard, athletic supporter (cup) and shin guards.

*Applicants will be notified at the end of the tryouts if they have been selected to continue on in the casting process. If selected, applicants must be prepared to stay in Rio de Janeiro until October 17 to undergo medical and toxicology tests. Accommodations for the extended stay will be paid for by the UFC.

Lightweights were most recently featured on TUF Live, where Michael Chiesa emerged as season winner; while welterweights were last featured on TUF season 13, the title captured by Tony Ferguson.

TUF, which debuted in 2005, has launched the careers of more than 100 UFC fighters and has produced past champions such as Rashad Evans, Forrest Griffin, Michael Bisping and Nate Diaz.
