After recently confirming the possibility of the first-ever international edition of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's reality series "The Ultimate Fighter," UFC president Dana White said he now has a likely location in mind: the Middle East.

If Renzo beats Hughes I gaurentee he will be one of the coaches, who knows who the other would be though.....they will need some interpretuers for this one. I like the idea though, it could bring in a wealth of unknown talent to swell the weight classes! More match ups the better IMO.

That's a bold "gaurentee". What makes you think that?



***Hughes excited for "Midwest" TUF. ***

The fact that Renzo used to and probably still does train the Prince of the country he is fighting in, the same country that just bought a share in Zuffa. What country is it again...Dubai?
I digress....he obviously has good PR skills with people of foreign (to the US) origins, he is a well established MMA/BJJ trainer who owns his own school. The fact that I said IF he beats Hughes, who is a previous TUF Coach. If I were a betting man (which I am) and Renzo did in fact beat Hughes, and TUF is recorded/set in the middle east with fighters from the region.....he would be the obvious pick.
