    Default The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 'Nations' cast revealed for UFC reality show on FOX Sports

    The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 'Nations' cast revealed for UFC reality show on FOX Sports 1

    The teams are as follows:

    Team Canada

    Kajan Johnson (19-10)
    Luke Harris (10-2 1 NC)
    Nordine Taleb (8-2)
    Sheldon Westcott (8-1-1)
    Elias Theodorou (8-0)
    Chad Laprise (7-0)
    Olivier Aubin-Mercier (4-0)

    Team Australia

    Tyler Manawaroa (10-0)
    Richard Walsh (7-1)
    Priscus Fogagnolo (7-1)
    Vik Grujic (6-2)
    Daniel Kelly (5-0)
    Brendan O’Reilly (5-0)
    Zein Saliba (4-0)
    Jake Matthews (3-0)

    Team Canada has a slight experience edge over their Australian counterparts.

    Both Taleb and Johnson train out of Montreal's famed TriStar gym, home to UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre. However, only seven of the eventual eight fighters on Team Canada have been announced thus far.

    TUF Nations debuts on Wednesday, January 15 in the same time slot the recently completed TUF 18 also aired in. The upcoming season marks the first time a TUF show featuring no Americans in the cast has aired on a major cable television platform in the United States (other than the relatively low-penetration FUEL TV, which aired TUF Brazil).

    Don't really understand the logic behind the regional versions of TUF. Just taking a format that is already dated and losing it's drawing appeal and watering it down by putting less legit talent on it and coaches that are far removed from main event material.
