Yesterday we learned that the UFC has put together an all-star cast of 115 pound female fighters.
The world’s top 11 strawweights have been plucked from InvictaFC and will all compete in the 20th season of the Ultimate Fighter. The winner of TUF 20 will serve as the inaugural UFC strawweight champion of the world.
After yesterday’s announcement the ladies took to twitter to express their grattitude and excitement.
