It's been quite a long time since light heavyweights were on TUF, not since season eight five years ago, which was won by current top 10 205-pounder Ryan Bader and included the likes of Vinny Magalhaes, Kyle Kingsbury, Tom Lawlor and more.

Middleweights, of course, were recently featured on TUF season 17, where Kelvin Gastelum outlasted Uriah Hall to capture the six figure contract.

No word yet on who will coach the nineteenth season.
