The cast for the long teased season of The Ultimate Fighter China has been revealed. Rather than competing coaches the entire cast will face off under the tutelage of Cung Le.

I'll be surprised if this gets much attention, at least in the US. I know the "smashes" and TUF brazil has happened and i didnt see a single episode.

Complete waste of time to do Lightweights, as every single guy will be eaten alive in UFC proper. Would have been much smarter to do Flyweights and then you can at least fill out the division a bit.

I followed a little bit of TUF Smashes and quit a bit of TUF Brazil season 1.

I'll probably just catch some recaps on this one. I doubt a bunch of the contestants will make it on the UFC scene, but we might get a couple of standouts.

Idn about this one. Having flyweights or even bantamweights would have been a much better idea IMO.
Maybe in China this will be popular but I don't know how to pronounce nearly all of their names so trying to distinguish them will be tougher since I already haven't heard of any of them.
Cung Le as a "Dana White figure" seems a little silly to me but I'm sure these guys have a plan? Right?!

I'm beginning to cringe every time I see another article regarding yet another season of TUF.

CORRECTION: Cung Le was mistakenly reported as the individual coach for this season. He will in fact, be steering the season in a Dana White like role. The coaches, are unknown as of yet.

Too bad Xian Ji is the Legend FC champ since the UFC recently signed Jumabieke Tuerxun. Definitely 2 of the best China has for MMA at the moment, and both BW's. The Wild Wolf vs. The Executioner as coaches would be sweet.
