Default The Ultimate Fighter: United Kingdom Vs. Australia Now Official

Yay, another foriegn season of TUF that will be all in subtitles!!

The Ultimate Fighter is set to expand once again. After fourteen seasons in Las Vegas the reality show decided to give Brazil a try, and now they're going to go with a country vs. country format. BE's Josh Nason reported about the potential show last month, and now it's official: The Brits will take on the Aussies. UFC president Dana White tweeted about it a little while ago (he misspelled Smashes):

The name of the show is a play on The Ashes, a cricket match between England and Australia steeped in history (info via K.J. Gould). Tryouts will take place in Sydney on June 12th and London on June 15th, and are open to anyone from 130 pounds (between flyweight and bantamweight) to welterweight (170 pounds). It has been rumored that Brad Pickett might be a coach for the UK side but nothing is set in stone yet. A lot of the details will be ironed out over time, but this should be exciting news for UK and Australian MMA fans.
