Two huge cards in a week and thousands of miles of travel, why not mix in some scouting for your next Michael Bisping? UFC president Dana White is rolling out another set of daily video blogs leading up to UFC 90 in Chicago. It's Monday, two days after UFC 90 and White attends a tryout session for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. The show will feature a team from the U.S. and a team from the U.K.
White says tryouts before TUF3 in Great Britian turned out just 30 candidates, this time over 200 crowd the workout room. The show will feature fighters at 155 and 170 lbs.
One noticeable name chosen on the video is Wesley Murch. The young Brit was one of the first fighters eliminated in the round of 32 from this season's 155 lb. cast.
MMAJunkie reports TUF3 cast member Ross Pointon also makes another run at the reality show. Nothing against the guy, but how about selecting some new blood? Pointon is 6-10 as a fighter, recently going just 2-2 in Cage Rage. He was 0-2 in UFC fights getting quickly submitted by Rory Singer and Rich Clementi. He's an entertaining character but there have to be better prospects in the U.K. who deserve a shot.
