Default TUF 10 cast revealed!!

It’s been rumored for a while but TUF 10 is stocked with tough fighters. A recent Sun reports confirms a lot of the fighters in the house are pretty talented. A former IFL champion, several NFL players, and UFC veterans are in the house this season. Without further adieu, ladies and gentleman the next cast of the The Ultimate Fighter.

KIMBO SLICE: The YouTube phenonmenon and former Elite XC headliner will be the main attraction in the new season. UFC president Dana White has continually derided the 35-year-old, claiming “he would get killed in the UFC”. It will be interesting to see if the UFC supremo is proved right.

ROY NELSON: Boasting a 13-4 MMA record, the 32-year-old is a former Elie XC fighter who is perhaps best known for being knocked out by Andrei Arlovski last October.

WES SIMS: Formerly on the UFC roster, the 29-year-old was cut after just one year in the promotion in 2004 after losing three successive fights to Frank Mir (twice) and Mike Kyle.

MARCUS JONES: Former NFL defensive end for Tampa Bay Buccaneers between 1996 and 2002. Occasional guest on the popular American radio show Bubba the Love Sponge. Trained in MMA for over two years.

MATT MITRIONE: Another ex-NFL player, debuted as a rookie in 2002 for Minnesota Vikings. Very little MMA experience but trains with highly-regarded UFC heavyweight Jake O’Brien.

WES SHIVERS: NFL veteran and a late call-up to replace fellow pro-footballer Rex Richards. Very confident of winning the whole thing. Speaking last year, he bragged: “The only reason I have six fights now is because we have trouble finding opponents. One fight in particular, I had four opponents back out on me in a two-week period of time.”

JIM YORK: Nicknamed “Big”, York shares one thing in common with Kimbo - he too beat Britain’s James Thompson. The 33-year-old New Zealander emerged victorious from their Sengoku 7 clash after KO’ing the Englishman in the opening round of their March clash.

JUSTIN WREN: At 22 years old, The Viking is one of the youngest contestants on the new series. He has a 6-1 MMA record and trains with UFC star Travis Lutter’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team.

MIKE WESSEL: The Ohio native has already fought in the UFC, losing to Antoni Hardonk via TKO at UFC 92 in the second round of their Las Vegas clash. However, it should be noted that Wessel only took that fight on a week’s notice, and UFC president Dana White was impressed enough to offer him a four-fight deal and place on season ten of TUF for his effort.

SCOTT JUNK: Another fighter with previous UFC experience. The 30-year-old lost via heel hook in the opening round of his UFC 72 bout against Hungarian Christian Wellisch in September 2007.

ZAK JENSEN: Boasts a 7-3 MMA record and noted for his strong wrestling ability. Has suffered defeats to fellow TUF alumni Brad Imes and Mike Whitehead.

DARRILL SCHOONOVER: An impressive 10-0 MMA record sets the big Texan apart from the rest of the cast. The 23-year-old is an early favourite to win the series and UFC contract.

BRENDAN SCHAUB: Has fought in MMA for over two years but little is known about his ability. A 4-0 record suggests he has raw skills but his lack of experience may count against him.

JON MADSEN: Part of legendary UFC welterweight Matt Hughes’ stable but only has one MMA fight to his name - a KO win over Cody Griffen earlier this month.

TOM BLACKLEDGE: British MMA enthusiasts may already be familiar with Blackledge - he fights out of the Wolfslair in Widnes. He will be hoping to repeat the success of Michael Bisping by winning the series, but his 8-6 record suggest the odds may be against him.

ABE WAGNER: Big Nebraskan holds a 6-2 professional MMA record and could be the surprise package of this season.

Wes Sims!!!!!!!!!

He was the madman that stomped on Mir!

I was very glad when Mir smashed him in the return.

Fiore was talking in Vegas about Jon being close to getting on the show! Apparently he's a pretty cocky SOB, but he's good nonetheless.

I can't believe I am saying this, but for some reason I actually might watch this season.......

Damn you Spike TV and UFC! Putting Evans and Jackson together as coaches is just too much too resist!

Who am I kidding though, I can never keep up with my favorite TV shows. I'm too busy working, surfing the net, or watching the news.

Definitely WAR Jon Madsen!

they decided not to have the 32 man elimination this time. i think that part of it is because there is not enough talent out there at heavyweight and because they want kimbo to stay on the show.
