"The Ultimate Fighter 14" cast unveiled with 32 bantamweights and featherweights

Quote:
Spike TV has unveiled the group of 32 fighters who appear on the upcoming season debut of "The Ultimate Fighter 14."

The reality show, which is the final season to air on Spike TV before a move to FX, is the first to feature bantamweight (135-pound) and featherweight (145-pound) fighters.

Many notable names are part of the show, including Carson Beebe, John Dodson, Matt Jaggers, Paul McVeigh, Stephen Bass, Bryan Caraway, Eric Marriott, Micah Miller and others.

"TUF 14," which features Michael Bisping and Jason "Mayhem" Miller as coaches, debuts Sept. 21 on Spike TV.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported, the group of 32 will be cut down to an official cast of 16 following an elimination round of fights. All 16 elimination-round bouts air as part of the two-hour season debut. The tournament format then continues with eight bantamweights and eight featherweights. The show champions are crowned during a live-finale event on Dec. 3.

The oldest cast members are 31 and the youngest 21. The fighters from countries such as the U.S., Canada, U.K., Scotland and Sweden. Notable camps include the likes of American Top Team, Team Alpha Male, Jackson's Mixed Martial Arts, the H.I.T. Squad, Wolfslair Academy, Skrap Pack, Lloyd Irvin MMA and others.

Jaggers (Of Bellator and Sengoku) and Miller (Cole's brother, WEC and DREAM) all the way baby

Great to see Caraway on there, albeit a bit strange :P

How the **** is Micah Miller only 24 it feels like I have been watching him fight for almost a decade? It looks like all of the guys with a lot of fights are just can crushers who lose to every guy who is borderline UFC level they face so I'm thinking that at least one of the guys with only a couple fights is a pretty decent prospect and wins it.

Bryan Caraway is banging Miesha Tate, he must really wanna be a ******* fighter if he's willing to leave dat ass for that long.

I hope John Dodson wins, been a fan ever since Arlovski kicked him across Jackson's gym.

At Bantamweight I like Louis Gaudinot but I'm not sure about his weight. Last I checked he was more of a natural 125lber. However on pure talent, I'd favor him to win that.

That said, I like Carson Beebe and John Dodson to make the final, but you never really know with a big tournament like these. I don't think any one BW really sticks out from the pack. As pointed out wouldn't be surprised if Jaggers took it and McVeigh seems to be a live dog.


At FW I'm confused why Jimmie Rivera is there instead of at 135lb. Extremely confused. That said, he's hyper talented and is probably the best prospect on the show....even if he's dubiously at the wrong weight. I favour him along with Bryan Caraway who should clearly be the favourite in my eyes.

Also...woah at the prospect of brothers potentially fighting each other this season. O_O

You know it, SON. He trains with my good friend Danny Velasco who fights at 125. Danny killed in his first pro fight so watch out for him also when the UFC adds the 125 lb weight class.

I used to make fun of Danny for going to Tiger Schulmann's but him and Rivera are totally changing my perception.

BTW Rivera has put on some size since the last time I saw him which is why he's fighting at 145. He's a short dude though so I don't know if its the best move going up a weight class. I'm 5'9.5 and he comes up to my nose haha but he's a beast and I'll be rooting for him big time.

This season should be awesome talent-wise, for the first time in endless seasons

BW and FW have never been overexposed or been of TUF either, should be some great talent out there.

BTW the first show will be a 2-hour special showing each and everyone of the 16 fights to enter the house, and Dana has said he was blown away by those alone
