What weight should TUF Australia be at?

What are our deepest divisions? Who is in those divisions?

I would probably say WW or LW.

What are your thoughts? Who would you like to see reppin Oz in the house?

Do you want an Aussie coach or would you be ok with a big name (say champ). So who do you want coaching the Aussie fighters?

Give me your thoughts.

Who is at WW 170 (77kg)...

Shane Nix
Justin Murray
Corey Nelson
Manny Rodriguez
Matt Cain
Rob Whitta
Jon Leven
Ian Bone


What about LW 155 (70kg)...
Adrian Pang
Jai Bradney
Trekko (Not sure if he is still with the UFC but as a current Fighter don't see why not get him in the house)
Jacob Pettit
Josh Payne
Rob Hill
Rob Lisita
Shane Wundenberg
Sonny Brown
Ricky Rea

Would any of the Middleweights look at dropping down?

in regards to the division i say they are about equal.
in regards to coaches i feel it would make more sense to get established coaches in the mix. i'd suggest someone like anthony lange or john donohue. to the outside world no one would know who they are, yet to the fighters they would be known.
saying that, i strongly doubt australia would ever get a series of tuf filmed here.
we don't have enough recognised fighters in the americans eyes.

He's asking because they're (supposed to be) filming 'the smashes' with UK fighters later this year.. With finale is Brisbane... Like brazil where that TUF isnt for the US audience.. Phone Post

Hey Elvis I agree on WW and LW probably being the most stacked in Australia!

You would have to put Luke "Iron Duke" Picklum in the mix as either a LW or WW. He's tough as nails, got KO power in both hands and an old school BJJ black belt!

Other than Luke I second James Vainikolo and as fast rising stars you would have to add Marcus Flanagan and Richie Walsh to the mix!

As far as coaches go I still think it would be better to err on the side of using more experienced fighters even if they are not Aussies as coaches for the moment!

If they do tuf UK vs Australia I think it will be Bisping vs Lombard as coaches.

I'd like to see Ben Alloway take a shot at this.

I think Ben Wall would be a good addition too. Phone Post

Now that Hector has signed on the dotted line I'd say you're correct :)

Especially with Bellator saying they can't match UFCs offer, more then likely had something to do with not only "ppv buys" but also TUF. Phone Post
