UFC NEWS – The Ultimate Fighter Australia vs. U.K. In The Works

The UFC is set on expanding their Ultimate Fighter reality series beyond the United States. They proved this already with the recent announcement of “TUF Brazil”, but the brass isn’t intent on stopping there.

According to reports, UFC officials are in the final negotiating stages to bring The Ultimate Fighter to Australia in what will be the show’s second international stop.

On the agenda will be an Australia vs. U.K. themed series which will be filmed and broadcast in “The Land Down-under.”

If terms are met and a broadcast deal for the show can be made, the UFC intends on occupying Australia for the filming of the show sometime this year. The shows conclusion will take place in Brisbane at the Brisbane Entertainment Center which can hold approximately 13,500 fans.

No word was given on who the potential coaches may be or what weight classes the show will feature.

    Brian Ebersole vs Dan Hardy

  6. AJR80 says:

    That would be great but who could the coaches be tho? I heard Ebersole say on Twitter he’d like to coach the Aussies but who would coach us Brittish?, it’s not like they could bring Bisping back AGAIN and Dan Hardy doesn’t deserve it ATM. I’d say bring back Paul Daley and have him be a coach.
