With an official announcement for the The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK series drawing closer, FightBulletin.net can reveal exclusively that the show is expected to air on TV in September of 2012 with an official schedule for the show likely to be released inside the next 30 days. |
With weight divisions and coaches yet to be decided, UFC president Dana White on Saturday hinted at the UFC on Fuel TV 2 post-fight press conference in Stockholm, Sweden, that UK bantamweight Brad Pickett, who is under contract with the UFC, could be a likely candidate to coach the UK team.
White was full of praise for Pickett, who picked up a second-round submission win over Damacio Page in Sweden.
”Brad Pickett looked awesome tonight. I couldn’t be happier,” said White.
At the post-fight press conference Pickett mentioned that he would be interested in coaching a TUF team with White replying, “you just might buddy.”
Before any official announcement is made, the UFC bosses must iron out a couple of details, UFC executive Marshall Zelaznik told FightBulletin.net on Saturday night in Sweden.
The major decision for UFC officials to make is whether it will be a UK team or an England-only team facing off against Australia in the show titled “The Smashes.”
Providing it’s a UK team, Northern Ireland fighters will also be allowed to audition.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
