TUF Europe

Garry Cook mentioned at the Berlin post-fight conference that they're starting to look at locations to host a TUF Europe show featuring fighters from across the continent.

If the show selects the fighters wisely the cast could be one of the strongest in many years, obviously if it gets the OK it would still a while off yet but I see no harm in some mild speculation for entertainment purposes.

I'd certainly find the following cast entertaining:

Welterweight:

Melvin Manhoef (28-11)
Danny Roberts (11-1)
Gael Grimaud (19-6)
David Bielkheden (19-12)
Nicolas Dalby (12-0)
Ryan Scope (9-0)
Jim Wallhead (25-9)
Henry Fadipe (8-7)

Lightweight:

Mansour Barnaoui (11-2)
Ivan Buchinger (26-4)
Curt Warburton (13-4)
Mateusz Gamrot (6-0)
Alexander Butenko (34-9)
Saul Rogers (8-1)
Oriol Gaset (15-8)
Colin Fletcher (10-4)

That is an awesome cast there Mr Double-Poster

Make Dan Hardy one of the coaches and it'd be an epic season!

Yeah sorry about that, I was trying to stimulate a bit of conversation.

Coaches though! You could have:

Dan Hardy (good call!)
Ian Freeman (might be a bit old school in technique though)
Andrei Arlovski
Vladimir Matyushenko
Mark Weir

Or go with two fighters from the roster and have them fight at the final.

I'd also expect it to be filmed somewhere with a nice climate probably along the Med due to the abundance of suitable Villas.

I could see it being Team UK vs. everyone else. That seems to be a common theme in international versions of TUF. If it were a general Europe TUF then I could see some wide diversity but overall I think it would be filmed in the UK because that's the most utilized European location in the UFC.

I'd be fairly certain it would not be shot in the UK due to cost alone, flights within Europe are relatively cheap so It's no issue to move people around and there are many more suitable locations, I'm not much of a betting man but I'd expect it to be in Southern Europe and probably one of France, Spain or Portugal.

France rather not as MMA isn't allowed there.

Sounds good to me.

Could be a good way to get Michael Page signed as he has 1 fight left in bellator and he has the right style to get people to tune in.

I'd also like to see:

Welterweights - Yasubey Enomoto, Andreas Stahl and Walter Gahadza

Lightweights - Damir Hadzovic, Christian Holley and Adrian Zielinski.
