The UFC is continuing their international expansion of the popular mixed martial arts series, The Ultimate Fighter. On Saturday, the promotion announced on their Chinese-language website that they are preparing tryouts for The Ultimate Fighter: China.

The UFC will hold tryouts on July 21 at the Beijing Metropark Lido Hotel, July 25 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, and Aug. 3 at The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macao. They are looking for fighters in the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight divisions.

MMA Weekly had additional information:

All TUF China applicants must have professional MMA experience verifiable via mixedmartialarts.com and sherdog.com fighter records. If the applicant’s record can’t be verified, they will likely not be eligible for the show.
