The UFC has signed three fighters from the Wolfslair and a further two are also expected to be on forthcoming seasons of The Ultimate Fighter, Fighters Only has learned.

Light-heavyweight Tom Blackledge, welterweight Kurt Warburton and heavyweight Rob Broughton all have three-fight deals in place and will make their debuts for the UFC later this year.

Those are actually some really good signings. Don't know much about KW, but Blackledge and Broughton are well-respected in the UK/Euro scene.

No surprise. since their two biggest hopes both got embarrassed they need some real contenders.

If they can somehow teach the UK fighters to wrestle they'd have some good fighters.

Broughton is a catch wrestler from Atherton, which is a town famous in catch-wrestling circles. Anyone who knows catch/catch history will know about Wigan and Atherton's place in that. Atherton is one of the few true catch gyms left in the UK, even in the world.

Without rising to the bait, all three of these guys are talented and deserve a spot on the roster. I'm sure they'll make good accounts of themselves.

None of those guys are going to make a dent in their respective divisions. They may as well have brought back Neil Grove.

I agree that Judo Jim needs to be the next fighter signed from the UK. But since he is currently fighting in another promotion then I guess we'll have to wait for that one.

OH SHIT, Broughton? Awesome. He's like the UK Roy Nelson, not much to look at, big overweight fella with heavy hands. Has won a few titles and is a nightmare to market and promote cos he is a quiet humble dude who isnt much to look at. Be insteresting to see how he does.

With regards Neil Grove, he had like one chance and got caught in a Sub, didnt exactly have a chance to redeem himself. Anyway, he's south african training out of UK.

Do not compare Broughton to Nelson. Nelson is 1000x more talented than Broughton. Broughton is a big brawler with no gas. Nelson is superior to him in every aspect of the game, especially on the ground.

Apparently Broughton gave Rampage a good beating in a sparing session a while back.

Personally I think he will do fuck all in the UFC, another Al-turk.

Woah there, sand.in.vagina.

Thats just the thing, Broughton doesnt gas easily at all, he's actually in great 'shape'. And to claim he is just a brawler shows you know very little about him at all.

But put your claws away, i think Nelson would clown him in a fight, the comparison was to do with how out of shape they look but actually they are legit threats in the division...

No. Broughton is not a legit threat to anybody halfway decent. He is on the level of an Eddie Sanchez, or a Neil Grove, or a Paul Buentello. He's a C+ talent and that is being generous. I saw the fight with Grove and it was embarrassing.
