In May, these 11 competitors will report to Las Vegas and participate on season 20 of The Ultimate FighterŪ in the first-ever all-women’s edition of the show. And for the first time ever, The Ultimate FighterŪ will crown a UFC champion, as the winner of season 20 will become the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion.

Michelle Waterson needs to put on 10 pounds and get her fine behind to the UFC.

In other news, I would have the intercourse with Paige Van Zant.

I read that from Helwani's twitter right after his bad news about Velasquez, glad for something good. Like how they have some nice distance between the only two so far classes unlike the smaller men's divisions they added last.

Invicta won't see it through 2014 so it's good to see a division of talent like that get a break. And to crown a champ at the end of the season? Love it! :D

TUF18 was a fine roster as it was.

TUF20 looks to be even better :D

TUF 18 was a joke. Maybe on paper they were supposed to be good but if that's the skill level brought to the ufc they should be back on the regional circuit.
