This is the right move to shake up TUF! There is definately a lot of talent outside of the US/Canada/Japan/Brazil markets...especially at the lighter weights. I just doubt that they will find the camps outside of the previously mentioned countries that will regularly produce the talent of fighters required by the UFC.
