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.
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.
All applicants must also be at least 18 years of age, living in China, have the legal right to work, pass a drug test, and be fluent in Mandarin/Putonghua.
The show will come to a conclusion with a live finale in Macao, but no date or broadcast information has been announced for the card.
