Cung Le 148 478x270With news that The Ultimate Fighter: China will serve as the next international edition of the series, UFC president Dana White has revealed that UFC middleweight Cung Le will take his role on the show.

While no timeline has been revealed for the show, White is unsure whether Cung Le will appear on any episodes, but he is there to remind the fighters why they are in the house and act as a mentor.

Like all the previous seasons of the show, two fighters will coach the teams. The coaches have yet to be announced.

“TUF China is happening,” White said. “(Cung Le) is going to be the ‘me’ in China. He’s there to remind everyone why they’re there and what’s going on. He was in the office two days ago and I walked him through everything with The Ultimate Fighter and he’s ready to go.”

With TUF: Australia vs. Canada currently in the tryouts stage, White also revealed that a series in Mexico is in the works, with Cain Velasquez sure to take some part in the production.

    • Lucas Freire

      I guess that’s because of his roots in Sanshou.
