Report: 'The Smashes' TUF Australia vs. UK or England in Sept.

by Fergus Ryan | source:

With an official announcement for the Australia vs UK, The Ultimate Fighter series drawing closer can reveal exclusively that the show is expected to air on TV in September of 2012 with an official schedule for the show likely to be released inside the next 30 days.

At the UFC on FUEL TV 2 post fight press conference in Stockholm, Sweden UK Bantamweight Brad Pickett mentioned that he would be interested in coaching a TUF team with White replying, “you just might buddy.”

Before any official announcement is made the UFC bosses must iron out a couple of details that the UFC’s Marshall Zelaznik revealed exclusively to on Saturday night in Sweden.

The major decision for UFC official’s to make is whether it will be a UK team or an England only team facing off against Australia in the show titled ‘The Smashes’.

Providing it’s an UK team, Northern Ireland fighters will also be allowed to audition.

The name 'The Smashes' is presumably a play on the UK vs. Australia Cricket series 'The Ashes'.

As a Pickett fan I'd watch a few episodes but TUF is extremely tedious now.

I'll kill them if they give another TUF season to Bisping.

Only reason it has been a failure, imo, is because it's on Friday nights.  I don't know whos idea that was, but they should be fired.

I don't put any salt on any of my food.It's something i've never done really. Don't see the need in adding salt to anything.

His entrance music will be Gary Mceff's "Ahh Ahh Ahh" and he will be wearing a Lacoste Trackie.

They might aswell open it up for the kiwis then - its not like they will get their own season any time soon. And they hate the poms just as much. Lol
