Wonder if this has anything to do with the massive amount of quality LWs that showed up in London yesterday

This is good news indeed.

Bring on the US!

Would prop you Ben but i've gotta spread the love........

''We are now looking for 155’s & 170’s. Unfortunately they are no longer considering 185’s. I’m so sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you or your fighters. Dana has also changed the requirements. The fighters must have fought at least 3 professional fights. Don’t even bother sending anyone to the tryouts unless they have a pro record.''

It looks like Dana was seriously impressed with the UK talent, on the show look out for:

Wesley Murch
Jimmy Wallhead
Andre Winner
AJ Wenn
Abdul Mohammed
Ross Pointin

Here's the official UFC video of the TUF tryouts:

Fighting Fedor? But I also say good call on LWs, even though that's 2 straight TUFs with them now they always put on such great fights and that division can't get deep enough.

I hear Bisping, Rampage and Kongo all got through to!

Kind of dissapointing because MW is probably my favorite division...right up there with LHW but if there are a bunch of good LW's trying to make it on the show at WW then it makes sense. I hope the UK team isn't so overmatched that it makes for a relatively predictable show. Here's to another good season
