It looks as thought as though the third season of the Ultimate Fighter may have somebody from the UK in the house. The UFC will be searching for fighters in the UK for the upcoming show.
MMAWeekly’s Lee Whitehead reported this weekend from the UK that Michael Bisping has been talking to the UFC regarding TUF3 – he has had two conversations with Joe Silva so far and will be down in London on the 3rd of December to talk with their representatives. He has also mention that his management team have had interest from Pride and K1.
Here was a recent press release from the UFC regarding their plans for the UK.
“This is your big chance to make it in Mixed Martial Arts and break into the UFC. Dana White, the President of the UFC, Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar are coming to London to recruit Middle and Light Heavyweight fighters for The Ultimate Fighter 3.
This year two British fighters will get their shot. One of the 18 fighters who make it to the show will earn a contract with the UFC.”
