Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has released the finalized cast for season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) on FOX Sports 1, featuring 16 of the world's top female strawweight prospects, who reported for duty in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this week (Mon., June 30, 2014).

UFC on FOX has the reveal:

Heather Jo Clark
Emily Kagan
Aisling Daly
Lisa Ellis
Carla Esparza
Felice Herrig
Randa Markos
Alex Chambers
Joanne Calderwood
Bec Rawlings
Rose Namajunas

The promotion was able to poach Invicta FC for most of its 115-pound talent, and the ladies in question have already received a sizable salary increase (details). In addition, this season's winner will be crowned first-ever UFC strawweight champion.

And a couple of contenders may already be waiting.

TUF 20 will be coached by UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and division number one contender (and former Strikeforce kingpin) Gilbert Melendez. Stay tuned for more news and notes on the next domestic season as they become available.
