The Ultimate Fighter series, with British mixed martial artists trying to get a UFC deal, on terrestrial TV? Sounds far-fetched.

It may not be. The Ultimate Fighter series could soon be in the UK, and be shown on terrestrial television, with Michael Bisping as one of the team coaches. Bisping, of course, went from Clitheroe in Lancashire to Las Vegas and won Series 3 of the Ultimate Fighter.

Those are the whispers - not confirmed - that talks are underway to create a first TUF series in the UK, given its success in the US. It follows the success of Forrest Griffin last weekend.

Sounds like Lorenzo is already hard at work going the international route.

I think it's a great idea. There are some great fighters in the UK that typically wouldn't have any recognizability in the US. This could change that.

Who would be the other coach? Probably not a fighter from the UK. Maybe Dan Henderson.

I was talking about this awhile ago. That it would be a great idea to do this in another country. My question is. If they do this in another country are they just going to use fighters from that country? Or are they going to bring in others? As for the other coach other than Bisping. I could see Henderson being the other coach also.

i think it would be better if they keep the fighters from the specific country that they are in. i mean i believe there are at least 5 more season of tuf? i would like to see 3 or 4 of those in a different country
