TUF 25 Could Be A Welterweight All Stars Season…Potential Casts.

It had been rumored that UFC would cancel the Ultimate Fighter reality show, however, it look like the show may see a 25th season.  MMA Junkie reported that a 25th season would begin filming in January and could be an all star season featuring welterweight fighters.  I am not certain what that means exactly.  I suppose it could be a season like the 4th season which was a “Comeback” season.  That season featured Matt Serra and Travis Lutter winning title shots and ultimately saw Matt Serra win the UFC belt against Georges St. Pierre.

Here is what a TUF 25 comeback season could look like in terms of cast

  • Colton Smith
  • Dhiego Lima
  • Yuri Villefort
  • Paul Bradley
  • Jason Jackson
  • Hayder Hassan
  • Eddie Gordon
  • Matt Dwyer
  • Chuck O’Neil
  • Dom Waters
  • Mike Ricci
  • Ramsey Nijem
  • Jonavin Webb

I would prefer a season similar to the current season.  The 16 flyweight cast members are all champions of other organizations.  UFC could seek out some of the best welterweights to add to the roster.  A cast could look like this:

  • Dhiego Lima (Titan)
  • Jason Jackson (Titan title challenger)
  • Brian Camozzi (RFA)
  • Khusein Khaliev (Global Proving Ground)
  • Alexei Kunchenko (M1 Global)
  • Borys Mankowski (KSW)
  • Handesson Ferreira (Jungle Fight)
  • Mukhamed Berkhamov (Tech Krep)
  • Chris Curtis (CES)
  • Manny Walo (CFFC)
  • Ben Egli (KOTC)

Obviously, some of the champions of other organizations cannot just leave and go to UFC due to exclusive contracts.  However, UFC could find a great cast of the top welterweights outside the UFC.  They don’t all have to be champions, but just say they are going to find the best non-UFC welterweights.  Target guys like Karl Amoussou and others who would be nice additions to the roster.  Even prospects like Logan Storley would be solid.
