TUF 17 cast revealed


The UFC recently announced the names of 28 fighters who compete in a single elmination round during the TUF 17 opener on Jan. 22 (FX, 8 p.m. ET), to earn an offiicial spot on the show.

One of those names is the "TUF Beast" that UFC presdent made intriguing reference to.

"The whole house is terrified of this guy. Everybody," said White. "I picked this fight, and this guy is lined up with the guy I'm telling you about, and the guy has a nervous breakdown in the house over the weekend.

"This guy scared the living s--- out of everyone. It's awesome."

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and King of the Universe Chael Sonnen are opposing head coaches on the series and, barring injury, will fight on a PPV card from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on April 27th.
