UFC Announces The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK Edition

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The Ultimate Fighter is coming to Australia.

UFC officials announced Thursday night that the rumored series The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK will go into production later this year. This marks the second international edition of TUF following this year's TUF: Brazil, which wraps up in June.

TUF: Australia vs. UK will feature bantamweights and welterweights. Tryouts will be held June 12 in Sydney and June 15 in London. Australian fighters hoping to try out must register here, while English fighters must sign up here.

The reality show will be filmed in Australia; however, the promotion did not announce whether it will air in North America. TUF: Brazil aired on TV in Brazil and on UFC.com for international viewers.

This marks the second country vs. country matchup on TUF. TUF 9 featured US fighters vs. UK fighters with coaches Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping leading the way. The UFC will announce the coaches for this series at a later date.

The tag line for TUF: Australia vs. UK is "The Smashes," which is a play on the 130-year old cricket rivalry between the two nations.
