    If the UFC keeps starving the heavyweight division like this, they are eventually going to become 205ers.

  • alpoca says:

    when will we see heavyweights?

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    Ultimate Fighter 9 I would assume. Should so badly be TUF 8, maybe they are just hoping the light heavyweights they get will just drop down to middleweight and they can fill it twice as hard.

  • Nick Cloke says:

    When is Tuf 8 or any of the Tuf’s coming to San Diego for tryouts. For Light Heavywieghts or Middleweights.
