UFC is gonna be having tryouts for TUF 27 in Vegas for men fighting at 145, 155, and 170. Pre-requisite being you have to be undefeated, have at least 3 pro fights, and be between the ages of 21 and 34.

I get that those are the divisions where you’re most likely to find some real talent hidden in the mix but the UFC currently has at least 4 divisions (HW, LHW, FLW, and WBW) that need new faces ASAP.


TUF 26 Cast Revealed:

  • Ariel Beck (4-4)                 Barb Honchak (10-2)
  • Christina Marks (8-8)        DeAnna Bennett (8-3)

This season will crown the UFC’s first women’s flyweight champion, and will be coached by Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje. Episode one airs on Wednesday., Aug. 30.

The brackets to crown a ladies flyweight champ. A lot of these fights are actually kinda well matched so thumbs up to ‘em. Having said that, if we get Barb Honchack vs Roxy in the finals, I may legit skip that show altogether. You people can’t pay me to do this.  Also kudos to them for putting Lauren Murphy and Honchack on the same side so they can metaphorically cancel each other out.
