Spike TV officials today unveiled the official 14-person welterweight cast for "The Ultimate Fighter 13."

The long-running competition-reality series debuts March 30 on Spike TV with heavyweight contenders Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos as coaches.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported earlier this month, UFC officials eliminated the "elimination round" from this season of the show, so the fighters won't have to win an opening-round matchup to secure their spot on the cast.

The cast includes notables such as Nordin Asrih, Shamar Bailey, Myles Jury and Charlie Rader, who all have at least nine professional fights. The fighters come from the U.S., England, Germany and Canada. (See the full list and biographical information below.)

Wow. I'd say, aside from season 4 that used UFC vets; this is definitely the most talented cast at time of filming ever.

Cast actually has a good number of fights, most of them have at least like what 4 fights and some more.

I think one of the fighters mentioned that his record was 2-0. I could be wrong though, because after the HW season they said only fighters with at least 3 pro fights can be chosen for the show. I'll go back and look. (I also just realized the video was on the article posted. My bad. haha)


Edit:

Name: Javier Torres
Age: 25
Trains: Las Vegas, Nev. (Team Tompkins)
MMA record: 3-0

That's what the article says, but on the video he says his record is 2-0.
