The next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” has been announced.
The UFC will search for undefeated fighters with at least three professional fights on their records to make up the cast for the 27th season of the long running reality show.
Open tryouts for the show will be held at the Palace Station in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Dec. 12 with male fighters eligible from the featherweight (145 pounds), lightweight (155 pounds) and welterweight (170 pounds) eligible for the competition.

If selected, applicants must be prepared to stay in Las Vegas until Saturday, December 16.”
