MMA Sun can confirm that Marcelo Guimares is a part of the crop of middleweight fighters in the debuting season of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil. Guimaraes is a guy who probably could have gone straight into the UFC. He is the current Jungle Fight middleweight champion. He has a win over Ildemar Alcantara. He is undefeated at 7-0. I believe that TUF is a great opportunity for him. Not only can he do well, but he can get some great exposure and training as well.
The 28-year old Caveira Team member has looked solid in his career. I have too believe that on paper Guimaraes is one of the early favorites in the middleweight portion of TUF Brazil.
