The Ultimate Fighter Brazil Cast

Today, the UFC officially revealed the cast of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3.  There are a few interesting names.  I will give you the guys to watch and a few things to help you make predictions for the season.

There are some veterans on the show.  Vitor Miranda is a solid veteran, who I believe is the favorite to win the Heavyweight portion.  He is almost 35-years old though, so he is not exactly a prospect.  Bellator veteran Thiago Santos is on the show as well.  He is known for being kicked in the groin by Eric Prindle.  TUF Brazil 1 competitor Richardso “Rick Monstro” Moreira will get a second chance at his dream of reaching the UFC.  Strikeforce veteran Marcos Rogerio de Lima will also be featured.  Lima is best known for a win over Paulo Filho.

There are few notable prospects as well.  MMA Sun Prospect Spotlight featured Warlley Alves de Andrade as the number 5 welterweight prospect and Ricardo “Demente” Abreu as the number 5 middleweight prospect.  Those are the two biggest standouts. Also, Marcio Alexandre who is 12-0 is on our welterweight prospect list.  Jiu Jitsu ace Antonio Carlos Junior is a very good light heavyweight prospect, who I think is the sleeper to win.

If you are making fight picks or just want to impress your friends at a party I would pick from Miranda, Carlos, de Lima, and Moreira for your heavyweight finals.  I would also look to Warlley Alves, Ricardo Abreu, Marcio Alexandre, and maybe Wendell Oliveira to make the middleweight final.  Of course, there is often a sleeper, but I am thoroughly sold on Antonio Carlos Jr, for that role.
