The next generation of potential UFC fighters has arrived. Season 12 of "The Ultimate Fighter" has an interesting collection of lightweights. You've got experienced fighters like Steve Sharp, Dennis Davis and Nam Phan, who have a combined 81 pro fights. Phan (15-7) is a veteran of Sengoku, King of the Cage and Strikeforce. And then a crew of 18 fighters between 21-24 years old.
For the most part, it appears Spike and the UFC stayed away from combatants just entering the sport. TUF 12 debuts Sept. 15.
