Just to make things even more different on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3, the coaching staffs include female assistants for the first time, as Hortencia Marcari and Isabel Salgado are on the show.
The UFC released a video with interviews from both Marcari and Salgado, who are working with coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva. The entire season airs exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
Neither have experience in MMA, as Marcari is a former Olympic medalist in basketball and Salgado a standout in volleyball.
“I’m enjoying (the season) a lot,” said Marcari, who is working with Sonnen’s team. “I believe that inviting two women to be part for an event which had men the last two seasons is a huge opportunity for me. Something that I’ve never done before. I’m making the most of it.”
