Upcoming tryouts for “The Ultimate Fighter” will include fighters – male and female – from three different weight classes.

Officials today announced an open call for male light heavyweights, as well as female bantamweights and strawweights, for “The Ultimate Fighter 23.”

I agree with getting more 135 pound women. Light Heavyweight could also use more fighters. Hopefully they draw from a pool of experienced fighters from around the world so they aren't too far from the top 10.

This move makes sense if it is meant to fill two of the 3 shallowest divisions. They could have done HW instead of women's 115 and covered all 3 of the shallowest divisions.

There we go. It's about time they switch up the divisions a bit.

They could HW in Europe, but only if they totally raped M1 and KSW...otherwise the division is pretty crappy. LHW is ready for another division, I just hope it's not filled with MWs who are fighting at LHW so that they don't have to do cardio and so they can drop down once they enter the UFC. I think every international TUF should go against and American team...so like Latin America/Japan/Europe vs the US. It's the only way to cut the fight.

I thought the tuf Latin America finales were pretty mediocre in terms of skill... Maybe except barzola. The thing is that although the skill level is not quite there yet in other tuf countries besides US... It does promote MMA and the ufc for sure though and that's a good thing I think.
