Claudia Gadelha and Juliana Lima out of TUF 20?
We are getting word from our sources that Claudia Gadelha and Juliana Lima might be immediately signed to the UFC and not participate in “The Ultimate Fighter 20″.
The reason we are hearing is Fox Sports 1 has a problem with the language barrier with the two Brazilian signees.
Gadelha has tweet she hasn’t heard anything on her end, but that may just mean she hasn’t gotten word yet.
This would increase the spots available during the tryouts to seven. We may see one more spot open as well due to another issue. We will have more about this next week.
Saturday, we will be doing a scouting report on who is going officially and who we expect to see there. Wombat Sports will be covering the tryouts in Vegas April 27-28.
If true then this is some dumb shit on Fox Sports' part!
Gadelha would've won the whole thing, if they're gonna have issues with fighters they're gonna have to subtitle then they're gonna need to cut Calderwood too.
The concern that Gadelha is also a giant weight cutter could be an issue.
