Wanna boost your ratings for TUF? Well UFC has the answer as this week starts the open tryouts for one of what I feel will be the BEST TUF SEASON EVER! We’ll add some women to the mix and put them in the house with the guys, and see what happens. And the women are defiantly brining it by having some large significant talent trying out.

Top-ranked female fighters Shayna Baszler, Tonya Evinger, Tara LaRosa, and Roxanne Modafferi were among nearly 300 hopefuls who attended Monday’s open tryout session for “The Ultimate Fighter 18.”
And if those are not impressive enough, other intriguing women’s names attending the session include Kim Couture and Revelina Berto (sister of former WBC welterweight boxing champ Andre Berto), as well as veterans of the all-female Invicta FC promotion:Marcie Allen, Jessamyn Duke, Bethany Marshall, Sarah Moras, Jacelyn Lybarger, and Raquel Pennington.
Early TUF seasons were successful because of the combination of talent and an attraction of some reality show drama. The level of the women who are trying out appear they will have no problem with either of those. I can not wait for a CO ED TUF house this is going to be a great fighter experiment.
