TUF 9 Cast List Released

TUF LogoThe cast of young hellions fighters for the ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter has been revealed.

Kevin Iole published the list earlier today, and got a few comments from Dana White.

“In all the past seasons of the show, we had these little cliques form and everyone developed a strong team identity,” UFC president Dana White said. “But this season, it’s crazy. With country versus country, the whole team thing goes crazy. It’s wild.”

After what went on last season, I can only imagine.

The list is after the jump for you diehard TUF fans who want to check the fighters out on the internet before the season airs. Noticeably missing is Junie Browning’s brother, Robert, who was reportedly added to the cast.
