Three different weight classes will hold tryouts for the upcoming 26th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Invites have been extended to females competing at both strawweight and bantamweight, along with middleweight.

UFC will begin the search for the next cast of The Ultimate Fighter® with an open casting call for women’s strawweights and bantamweights as well as men’s middleweights on Tuesday, May 23 in Las Vegas. Tryouts are open to all competitors aged 21-34 with at least three professional fights and a winning record. The season will begin filming in July and premiere on FS1 later this year.

Applications, which should be completed and brought to tryouts, can be found online at http://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. All questions can be directed to TUFcasting@ufc.com.

The Ultimate Fighter, which debuted in 2005, has launched the careers of some of the UFC’s most recognizable names and successful athletes. The series has produced six UFC champions including Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans, Michael Bisping, TJ Dillashaw, Carla Esparza, and Matt Serra.
