The winner will be part of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale later this year, where new TUF winners will be crowned. The May event features Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic in the main event.
Of the eight finalists, two actually train in MMA along with their modeling careers. Ana Cecilia practices taekwondo, as she says her "entire family trains. My mother's got a black belt and my brothers also train."
Camilia Bortolazzo uses boxing to stay in shape, adding, "I love it. I've been training for one year now." TUF Brazil 3 airs exclusively on UFC Fight Pass each week.
- UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continues to take shots at Cris "Cyborg" Justino, despite Justino still not being signed to a contract with the promotion. Rousey, who meets Alexis Davis later this year at UFC 175, discussed her feelings on Cyborg and her previous steroid use with Yahoo! Sports.
"I've said before, I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I'll fight her," Rousey said. "I can't make a decision for the whole division. I can't say it's the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and (has been) injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore. She's an 'it.' It's not good for the women's division. It's not good at all."
In 2012 Justino tested positive for an anabolic steroid that she said was used to cut weight and not build muscle mass. She was fined by the California Athletic Commission and suspended for a year. She has competed for Invicta FC and Lion Fight since her release from Strikeforce.
"If she comes in the UFC and I beat the (expletive) out of her and then I retire and become an action movie star, then the UFC is still going to be stuck with her," Rousey said. "The division could die. She could ruin the whole sport. Even though it's a fight a lot of people want to see, even if I beat the living crap out of her, it won't be good for the sport because she'd still be in the UFC."
- Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem is not a small human being. Overeem stands 6-feet-5 and weighs over 260 pounds. However, next to former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, he looks like a flyweight.
O'Neal was in attendance this past weekend at UFC on FOX 11 from Orlando. In fact, the pre-fight press conference last week was held in his house - on his personal basketball court.
Overeem, who is currently rehabbing from an injury, took a moment to grab a picture with O'Neal, who stands over seven-feet and weighed better than 300 pounds during his playing days.
