Default TUF in Australia - Aussies vs Poms - bring it on!

Many have probably already heard. But I hadn't til this morning, so pardon me while I get a little excited about this >>>

Australia is finally getting their own season of The Ultimate Fighter.
After plenty of discussion and rumors, the UFC announced Friday morning that filming of the long-running reality TV show will see fighters from Australia square off against athletes from the United Kingdom in an MMA twist on “The Ashes”.

No word yet on who will coach either side, though in speaking with Dubbo’s Kyle Noke last week, the veteran middleweight said he would love the opportunity to be a part of the program.

Here’s the full press release from the UFC:
UFC ANNOUNCES THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER AUSTRALIA VS UK – ‘THE SMASHES’ TV SERIES
AUSTRALIA TO TAKE ON THE UNITED KINGDOM IN THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL EDITION OF THE UFC’s REALITY TV PROGRAM
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN TO PROSPECTIVE FIGHTERS

Sydney, Australia – London, UK – The Ultimate Fighting Championship has confirmed it will film an Australian edition of its hit reality television series, The Ultimate Fighter (‘TUF’), giving Aussie and British mixed martial artists the opportunity to secure a lucrative contract with the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) organization.

Registration is now open to all aspiring UFC fighters from Australia and the UK. Prospective competitors should visit [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (Aus) for registration forms, rules and qualification criteria. The live tryouts, scheduled for June 12 in Sydney, 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).

The Australian series, dubbed The Smashes – a play on the 130 year-old cricket rivalry, will see undiscovered professional MMA fighters from Australia and the United Kingdom live together in The Ultimate Fighter House in Australia and compete against each other for a prized UFC contract. This is only the second time in TUF’s seven-year history that teams will represent their country of origin, the first taking place in 2009, during the ninth series, as Team USA took on Team UK.

Not enough pro experience, unfortunately.

You've really gone out on a limb with that response Stoo. The old invisible bump trick.

Should have Bisping (UK) and Lombard (Aus) for coaches for a build up so they can go at it.
