Fans have been calling for featherweights and bantamweights on TUF for years, and it looks like they’re finally going to get their wish. UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby (former WEC matchmaker who now shares matchmaking duties with Joe Silva) tweets that the next season of TUF will feature fighters in the 135 lbs. and 145 lbs. weight divisions. Wonder who will coach? Dominick Cruz? Urijah Faber? Miguel Torres?
Update: Sherdog is hearing Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber is the plan if Faber beats Eddie Wineland at UFC 128.
While not officially announced by the promotion, sources close to the situation have informed Sherdog.com that the UFC’s tentative hope is to use bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber as the coaches for the 14th season, should Faber triumph in his March 19 bout with Eddie Wineland at UFC 128 in Newark.
