From MMAFighting.com:

Feb 27, 2012 - FX and the UFC have announced the 32-fighter cast for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.

The group is a relatively unknown bunch, although a few have been around the block: Myles Jury is a 9-0 veteran who has finished all nine of his opponents in the first round. He was on the 13th season of The Ultimate Fighter but had to leave the house after suffering a serious knee injury. And James Krause, who fought twice in the WEC, is part of the cast as well.

The Ultimate Fighter has been radically overhauled for its 15th season, which will premiere on March 9 on FX. For the first time, the fights will be live, starting with a premiere episode with an unprecedented 16 live fights airing on one night. After that, the 16 winning fighters will move into the house and be divided into teams coached by Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz, and a fight or two a week will air live on FX every Friday night after that.

The full list of competitors is below.

Akbarh Arreloa, Chula Vista, Calif.

Al Iaquinta, Wantagh, N.Y.

Ali Maclean, Belfast, North Ireland

Andy Ogle, Tynemouth, England

Yeah, I had seen a similar article on MMAFighting.com. I hope they don't try to play that up too much.

I'm pulling for Erin Beach....good guy. He teaches at Noguiera's gym here in SD.

He also trains at Alliance with Cruz so I assume that's what team he will be on.

yeah .. dana has said in many interviews that he has no problems with Dakota Cochrane (that also had to be his film name too) having sex with other men on film (which is fine) .. but he fires Chandella for having sex with herself on film ... :unsure-1:

Chandella did not get fired....but she also did not tell them about this, which Dakota did.

As for my pick, Beach, he got KO'ed in 8 seconds. :cry:

They're not showing it again on FX before next week's episode, but I'm assuming you should be able to find something on FX.com or maybe FuelTV.

The show had some good fighs but something about it didn't grab me like the old ultimate fighter. I guess what I disliked the most was the awkward silence....

They will probably show it on ultimatefighter.com or on FX.com. I do not own dish or cable so I typically watch it this way. Also blip shows it once in awhile as well.

This doesn't help but I recorded the re-run at 1:30am last night...Not sure if it will play again though.

I downloaded it and watched it. They could really use a fight announcer during the fight. Just listening to Cruz and Faber talk once in a while really didn't do much.

dana will get him in the house somehow .. if he brings him in as a wild card .. saying he saw potential ... too much has been made for him to not just get in the house .... controversy brings viewers ......
