With the wrapping up of TUF 27; the preparations in full force for what’s been said will be the final season of TUF; TUF 28. The season will be coached by middleweight champion ROBERT “THE REAPER” WHITTAKER, and his soon to be challenger KELVIN GASTELUM; edging out CHRIS WEIDMAN. The 26 year old Gastelum (15-3 1nc); is on a 2 fight win streak. Whittaker (20-4) is riding a 9 fight wave. They’re calling this season “THE HEAVY HITTERS”.

Sure; there’s some true “bangers” in the competition of heavyweights and female featherweights; but no one that would strike fear in those already in the UFC. Some interesting names are 23 year old;  LARISSA PACHECO; who’s 0-2 in the UFC (both loses got finished) is now 11-2. The oldest in the TUF HOUSE will be JUAN FRANCISCO ESPINO DIEPA. He’s 8-1, and fights out of Las Palmas, Spain; but he’s 37. PANNIE KIANZAD is the former Cage Warriors champion and was a star in Invicta. 28 year old Michigan native; JOSH PARISIAN was just on DWCS. Two of the sleepers in the competition are another pair of 28 year olds: JUSTIN FRAZIER; who’s 10-2 and a powerhouse, and German KATHARINA LEHNER who was a title challenger in Invicta and is 7-1.

The rest of the cast rounds out like: BEN SOSOLIMAURICE GREENEMICHEL BATISTAANDERSON DA SILVAPRZEMYSLAW MYSIALALEAH LETSONMARCIEA ALLENBEA MALECKIJULIJA STOLIARENKOMACY CHIASSON. The season starts August 29th on FS1, and the finale is November 30th at the Pearl Theatre in Las Vegas.
