Whether you are a karate practitioner, boxer, wrestler, or a judoka making a few bucks fighting in MMA matches, this is your chanc to be in the new season of The Ultimate Fighter. TUF 23 will be holding tryouts for three different weight classes, whether they intend to have a casts for the three different divisions in one season remains to be seen. The tryouts are women in the 115 pound (Strawweight) division and 135 pound (Bantamweight) division, and men in the 205 pound (Light-Heavyweight) division. According to UFC standards, fighters must be between 21 and 34 years of age with a winning professional record and a minimum of at least three fights.
The sessions are to be held at the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday, December 14, 2015. The final cast will not be chosen until after the tryouts, so its possible there maybe only one or two weight classes instead of three. No word on potential coaches either. Some interesting choices for the next season coaches may include potential title fighters like Holly Holm, Miesha Tate, Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier, Robbie Lawler, or Tyrone Woodley. TUF 22 with coaches Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber will continue to air until the finale on December 11 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. The main events that will be headlining the finale feature Edson Barboza vs. Tony Ferguson at Lightweight, and Frankie Edgar vs. Chad Mendes at Featherweight.
