Australia is set to take on the United Kingdom in their second international edition of the Reality TV series.
The UFC has just announced that they will be filming the next international edition of the reality series in Australia, bringing in British and Australian fighters to compete against each other. Currently the UFC is just organizing the talent search by opening up registration for fighters that are interested and of course fit the criteria
The live tryouts, scheduled for June 12 in Sydney and June 15 in London, will be open to fighters ranging in weight from 61kg to 77kg. Participants must be between 21 and 35 years of age and have had at least three verified professional fights (having won two).
In the Australian series, fans will see the usual pro MMA fighters from both countries live together in The Ultimate Fighter House in Australia and compete against each other for the "Six Figure Contract". The last time that the UFC did something like this was UK vs. USA back in 2008. This will be the second time they will do the country vs. country thing.
“Australia and the UK have a fierce, long-standing rivalry, and where better to settle the score than in the UFC’s Octagon, The popularity of MMA has exploded in Australia and the UK, with gyms opening all over the respective countries. There is an athlete in one of those gyms who hasn’t had the chance to show the world what he can do – The Ultimate Fighter is going give to him that opportunity. We’re going to discover the UFC’s future stars, you can bet on it.” said Marshall Zelaznik, UFC’s Managing Director of International Development.
