Dana White and the UFC have been over to Sydney to help kick off proceedings for The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, where a team of UK lightweights and welterweights meet their Australian adversaries.

Filming has begun for the show, and the promos are underway.

Ross Pearson will be heading up the UK team, and he'll be up against George Sotiropoulos. They'll meet at lightweight after the show has finished. Full details on that are here.

The show is scheduled to air in September in the UK.

The list of competitors isn't in the public domain yet.

Read entire article...

The name The Smashes™ is a play on the 130 year-old cricket rivalry between the UK and Australia called "The Ashes."

 Zuffa just finalized a new 2 year deal with foxtel which will get tuf aus vs uk on FX, 6 events on fox sports, a ton of content continues on fuel and the ppv's on the main event channel.

foxtel is available in aprox 30% of the homes homes in Australia which has roughly 8 million homes.  They are estimated to be in over 50% of australian homes which would make them similar to "sky" in the UK.

Now if only Zuffa could get a similar deal with another fox organization in the UK (sky).

Is it true that the coaches' challenge for this season will be sheep-fucking?

CagePotato - Is it true that the coaches' challenge for this season will be sheep-fucking?

 How would they declare a winner?

In sheep-fucking everyone loses.

You'd think Zuffa would want to limit the number of Brits they get on contract. Dental plans alone might sink the mighty ship.
