UFC To Crown New Champion And Launch Women’s Flyweight Division
May 04, 2017
UPDATE: Dana White has said that the new division is still not confirmed despite the announcement.
A new division will be created and a new champion will emerge from the next season of The Ultimate Fighter.
Women’s flyweights, between the ages of 21-34 with a winning record and at least three professional fights are invited to attend the open casting call in Las Vegas. The season will also be open to females on the current UFC roster that can successfully make 125-pounds throughout the duration of the season. T
The previous casting call for women's straw weights and bantamweights, as well as male middleweights, has been canceled. The season will begin filming in July and premiere on FS1 later this year.
Applications, which should be completed and brought to try-outs, can be found online at https://www.ufc.com/TUF26. The athletes will be required to grapple and hit pads, so please bring appropriate gear.
Applicants will be notified at the end of the day if they have been selected to move on in the casting process. If selected, applicants must be prepared to stay in Las Vegas until Saturday, May 27.
