Who Could Be On The TUF 23 Cast?

The Ultimate Fighter will offer tryouts for three weight classes, the men’s light heavyweight division (205 lbs.), and the women’s bantamweight (135 lbs.) and women’s strawweight (115 lbs).  It is likely that the UFC will cut one of those weight classes at the tryouts or soon after, meaning at best, two of those groups will actually be part of the cast.  It is also likely that many actual middleweights will move up to compete on the reality show.  We take a look at some of the names that could be featured.

205 Pounds

  1. Andrew Sanchez
  2. Khalil Rountree
  3. Paul Craig
  4. Kyle Cerminara
  5. Jack Marshman
  6. Phil Hawes
  7. Max Nunes
  8. Josh Stansbury
  9. Eric Spicely
  10. Rob WIlkinson
  11. Tanner Boser
  12. Karl Moore
  13. Ryan Spann
  14. Rafael Lovato Jr.
  15. Jeremy Osheim
  16. Devin Clark

Women’s Strawweight

  1. DeAnna Bennett
  2. Stephanie Eggink
  3. Pearl Gonzalez
  4. Norma Center
  5. Danielle Taylor
  6. Ashley Cummins
  7. Jamie Moyle
  8. Jenna Serio
  9. Helen Harper
  10. Sharon Jacobsen
  11. Lacey Schuckman
  12. Amber Stautzenberger
  13. Claire Fryer
  14. Tessa Simpson
  15. Brianna VanBuren
  16. Amy Montenegro

Women’s Bantamweight

  1. Pannie Kianzad
  2. Jessy Rose Clark
  3. Brenda Gonzalez
  4. Rhiannon Thompson
  5. Kelly McGill
  6. Kate Da Silva
  7. Lina Lansberg
  8. Sabrina Garcia

The women’s bantamweight is the weakest of the divisions, but I am guessing there is a possibility that the two women’s merge into a new women’s flyweight division.  This would create an opportunity for women to drop down one weight class from 135 pounds to 125 pounds.  If not, I would be shocked if enough talent could be found in the women’s 135 pound division.
