The new history-making season of The Ultimate Fighter is only weeks away. But the 32 competitors of the first season to feature women as cast members and coaches have now been revealed in a exclusive.

Only sixteen of the male and female bantamweight (135lbs) fighters—from the United States, Canada, England, Ireland and Sweden—will make it into the TUF House, where they will face-off in the toughest sports tournament on TV. “This season of The Ultimate Fighter was monumental, as we had women as coaches and competitors – fighting and living together with the men – for the first time ever," said UFC President Dana White.

The premiere episode on September 4 will determine the eight men and eight women who will be divided into teams coached by UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey and her arch-rival Miesha Tate.

LaRosa should not have had to go through this show. I see her running through the house like Roy Nelson

Agreed its a slap in the face of her talents.

Tara LaRosa is rather long in the tooth for this though. Lot of mileage and her skill set isn't WMMA sharp anymore. Pennington would be my favorite if she wasn't scared shitless of fighting. Be interesting to see how the field plays out.

Meisha and Tara hate one another, I'm thinking that can make for an interesting season.
