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. 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.

      Lol, gonna smash the UK but doesn’t have a single fighter already in the division? We already stomped all over the US on TUF and you think you’ve got a better shot?

      Let the rain pouring down on your BBQ, COMMENCE!

  3. TUF AUS says:

    • Rule Britannia says:

      Are you mad. Can’t wait to watch a whole serious of ‘poms’ kicking your arses.

    • Lany says:

      Hector lombard is not Aussie he is Cuban who defected after attending 2000 Olympics. He used Australia to enter the USA hahahahaha so wake up and stop stealing other countries fighters. Australia has no talent at all it’s going to be funny. FYI yes I have fought in Japan USA Russia UAE and Australia and Australia is the rectum of martial arts

  4. TUF AUS says:

    Any UK guys think otherwise you crazy tea drinkers

  5. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

  6. boyheadkick says:

    Isnt george sotiropolous australian?or was he already cut by the ufc?

  7. Elite says:

    They should do George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson.

  8. Leech says:

    There are no top ozzies at the moment and don’t say te Huna , hunt , Lombard cause they are not Ozzie . The Brits will smash them 100 percent the Brits are always tougher and have way more heart

  9. Beaner says:

    Yeah the Brits are always tougher…. I guess P. Daley really showed Nick Diaz with his loss… lol it doesn’t matter what country your from. Your a human being your either a good fighter or a shitty fighter. Just because on TUF they had shitty American fighters fighting good British fighters doesn’t mean they will always win. Only Brazilians have an advantage because moat have that pestoplasmosis sorry for the spelling. Which comes from cats and causes them to have higher aggression levels or some shit not completely sure . I heard Rogan say it once on a podcast.

    gustavo is a beast, about time ufc got him. he has such a complete game and deserves to be put against the best to see what he is capable of. only every losing decisions, and always working for the finish. if he gets past pickett, give him a top 3 then title shot should be well earnt.

  11. Sick Brah says:

    Put a bunch of coons in there, we’ll win cos all the brits will break their limbs hitting the coons lol.

    Should be good though, can;t wait to see it, even if I don’t have foxtel….

  12. SASR says:

    Te Huna, Hunt and Lombard are aussie .. Its where they fight from and for :)

  13. GET RID OF TRT says:

    Brit = Prick

    Aussie = Pussie
