Default Philippines TUF for 2012 (possibly)

I know the talk for TUF Philippines begain in 2010, but it appears they may get it in 2012. I would imagine the likelyhood depends on the success of TUF: Brazil. I'm sure from both countries you are going to see quality fights considering these people are literally hungry.

The Ultimate Fighter: Philippines Edition Targeted for 2012

by Anton Tabuena on Sep 20, 2011 8:01 AM EDT in UFC News


Mark Munoz and Brandon Vera would be the
obvious candidates for TUF Philippines Coaches.


Several months ago, Dana White has announced that plans are in the works for hosting international editions of the popular reality show, The Ultimate Fighter. Their global expansion has taken a bit longer than he expected, but it looks like it's finally pushing through.

Officials from ABS-CBN, the parent company of Balls Channel which handles UFC programming in the Philippines, have informed BloodyElbow.com that the first international edition of the reality show, The Ultimate Fighter, is close to being finalized. This has been in the works for quite some time now, and we have been told that it is expected to be launched on 2012.

Details from 'TUF Philippines' such as coaches, participants, weight divisions, and prizes, are still being ironed out, but it is expected to be officially announced soon. Jon Jones' trip to the country has been finalized, and is reportedly set-up to not only talk about the UFC and MMA in general, but to help promote TUF Philippines as well.

As for the cast, the Philippines' top MMA promotion, the URCC, would be an obvious choice to help them stock up on talented fighters for the reality show. They routinely produce some of the best talent in the continent, with fighters such as Eduard Folayang, Eric Kelly, and Kevin Belingon among the many stars doing well in the Asian circuit.

Things can still change as the details get finalized, but as of this writing, URCC officials have informed us that the UFC has yet to contact them about using their talent for TUF.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Venus Raj - Miss Philippines 2010 - If you paid any attention to the Miss Universe pageant that year, she was the favorite to win, but gave one of the most smug answers of all-time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__SHk-xM89Y

meh .. i don't think the answer was smug, just worded wrong ... some of the questions are real dumb and when you gotta answer a dumb question on the spot, your not going to give a great answer ... looks like they put their best forth every two years (i am assuming the contest is every year??) .. look out 2012 !!!

It was pretty bad. She was a big favorite to win and she ended up getting 5th.

To her note, she has won a chicken-wing eating contest
