Nice to see a girl from my home Province of Saskatchewan, in Alyssa Krahn competing on this season.
I also want to add the the TUF 23 Finale will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday, July 8th. The day before UFC 200. There's also a UFC Fight Night Thursday, July 7th and I'm guessing that'll be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as well.

I'm not going to lie, that's a really disappointing cast. Especially the LHWs

Yeah, it's hard to get excited about TUF in general but larger mens weight classes have a really bad track record lately. THe women's 115ers though could have some interesting talent come through. Womesn 115 is like 155 for men.

Yeah there's a few names on the women's side that stick out. Moyle, Aldich, Montenegro are all Invicta vets. And Ashley Cummins w/ a 3-3 record is actually better than she looks. At least from what I've saw.
Seems like Eric Spicely should be the Men's favorite.
