TUF 26 tryouts scheduled for May 23 in Las Vegas

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold open tryouts for season 26 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) combat sports reality show on Tues., May 23, 2017 inside Palace Station Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Coaching assignments have yet to be revealed.

Female mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters in the strawweight and bantamweight divisions — as well as men in the middleweight class — are encouraged to attend, but all applicants must be between the ages 21-34 with at least three professional fights (and a winning record).

I would have expected tryouts in the women's featherweight division, considering it doesn’t have enough to populate the promotion’s official rankings, but I guess UFC has other plans.

Fighters chosen for call backs will be expected to remain in “Sin City” until Sat., May 27. Filming for the FOX Sports 1 television program begins this July with a premiere date to be determined.

Season 25, titled “Redemption,” gets underway later this month.
