By Jamie McAllister:
In the post-UFC on Fuel TV 2 aftermath, information began to surface about the ever-growing international expansion of the UFC and their “Ultimate Fighter” reality series.

An official announcement for The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK series is likely drawing closer.

FightBulletin.net revealed exclusively that the show is expected to air on TV in September 2012 with the release of the schedule is expected to be within the next 30 days.

Possible coaches?

Brad Pickett mentioned that he would be interested in coaching at last night’s UFC Sweden post fight press conference with Dana White replying, “you just might buddy.” In regard to an Australian coach there are currently no Australian’s in the UFC Bantamweight division, however one possibility is Cage Fighting Championship bantamweight champion Gustavo Falciroli.

Before any announcements are made the UFC bosses must finalize some details, UFC executive Marshall Zelaznik told FightBulletin.net.

Previously it had been stated by Zelaznik that the yet to be made official show’s finale will take place in Brisbane, Australia during 2012.
