The first ever international edition of The Ultimate Fighter will debut this weekend from Brazil with coaches Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva leading the way.

The show will feature a cast of middleweights and featherweights vying first to get into the fighter house, and then competing for a shot at UFC glory later this year.

The Ultimate Fighter Brasil will debut this Sunday night on Globo and will air in the United States via TUF.tv starting at Midnight ET/9 p.m. PT.

An interesting point to note is that The Ultimate Fighter Brasil will air in Brazil immediately following the hugely popular reality show Big Brother.

Because of Big Brother, The Ultimate Fighter Brazil may shift their start times week to week, but will air online at the same time, 11:30 p.m. ET. The show will be subtitled for fans outside of Brazil.

Prior to entering the house, the 16 fighters in each weight class will first have to square off to determine the final fighters available for selection by coaches Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort.

Here are the match-ups for the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil:

Middleweights

Leonardo Mafra Teixeira vs. Samuel Trindade
Daniel Sarafian vs. Richardson Moreira
Francisoc Drinaldo vs. Charle Maicon
Delson Heleno vs. Gilberto Galvao
Sergio Moraes vs. Thiago Real
Cezar Ferreira vs. Gustavo Sampaio
Joao Paulo de Souza vs. Thiago de Oliveira Perpetuo
Renee Forte vs. Fabio Luiz Vital de Costa

Featherweights

Alexandre Ramos vs. Hugo Viana
Giovanni da Silva Santos Jr. vs. John Teixeira
Marcos Vinicius Borges Pancini vs. Pedro Mobre
Rodrigo Damm vs. Fabricio de Assis Costa da Silva
Rony Mariano Bezerra vs. Dileno Lopes
Anistavio Medeiros vs. Rafael Bueno
Wagner Campos vs. Fernando Duarte Guerra
Godofredo Pepey vs. Johnny Goncalves
