On Friday, during the TUF 27 Finale broadcast, the UFC announced that middleweight champion Robert Whittaker (20-4) and Kelvin Gastelum (15-3, 1 NC) will coach season 28 of The Ultimate Fighter— featuring men’s heavyweights and women’s featherweights.
Season 28 is scheduled to begin filming in Vegas next week. The cast has yet to be confirmed, however, a number of popular fighters were recorded at the tryouts in May.
Cindy Dandois, Zoila Frausto, Kaitlin Young, Liz Phillips and Sarah Patterson are among the thirty participants who participated in the tryout. An almost complete list can be viewed here, courtesy of Wombat Sports.
With two of the best middleweights on the planet serving as coaches, could this season of TUF produce a future title challenger for Cyborg?
