You need to edit your title, should be TUF8.

EDIT: From the preview they showed on the Ultimate Fighter Finale, it looked like IFL fighter Krzysztof Soszynski will be participating as a LHW.

Ryan Jimmo @ LHW is rumored

Lance Evans @ LHW

Shane Nelson and Junie Allen Browning are supposedly confirmed LWs.

Rumored List (Take it for what it's worth)

It should be noted that Mark Hughes is rumored to fight at LW, I doubt this is true though. Would be cool if he is on the show.

can Mark Hughes even make 155??? that seems a little out of reach for a Hughes...

and Glover takes the 205 division.

Wow man, if thats true (rumored list) this might be one of the most talented seasons yet...Krzysztof Soszynski, Andre Gusmao, Glover Teixeira (for the LHW anyways)

Yeah, that's why I said I doubt it's true and it seems a little sketchy anyways.

Andre Gusmao is shown in the rumored list but he is already listed to fight in ufc 87, it's up on the UFC confirmed fights in the events section so scratch him.

Very true.

EDIT: Do you have a source to confirm this? I don't doubt you, I just want to see it for myself.

Krzysztof Soszynski is a beast. My early pick to be the winner at LHW.

Suppose to be 8 fighters per weight class that get in the house, but a total of 16 compete.

Here is a full preview that was realesed.LINK

From the Video
first fighter -> is Krzysztof Soszynski.(putting mouth guard on)

at 0:19 seconds of the video, the black guy punching the other guy, that is Lance Evans (rashads brother) .

at 0:22 of the video, the blonde LW guy, that is Allen Browning.

thats about how much i took from the video, still trying to figure out who is the guy with the crazy haircut.

if the rumored fighters area ll going to participate...then this will most definitely be the best TUF so far. last season as well as the previous few seasons has a shortage on talent, but some of the guys listed will make for an interesting tournament as most are skilled fighters will experience already earned. I hope Glover wins his weight division so that he can rematch Soko...i would love to see that so badly.

Didn't Mark used to fight at 185? He could be going LHW. I doubt it because he'd be tiny in comparison.

Glover is a savage. he trains with Hackleman and Liddell at the Pit.
He'll own the show.

Glover will massacre everyone at LHW, I don't care who else they pick for LHW he's my pick to win it all.

I knew a guy that tried out for the show, I dont know if he made it on or not?
His name is Tom Matijacic, he was the LHW champ for FCFF out of Portland OR. If anyone has any news for that let me know. Hopefully he did good.
