    Next Season of TUF - 10 - Heavyweights.

    Kimbo will be one of the 16 HW's in the house.

    Very interesting as Dana White has publicly bashed him before. Rashad and Rampage are the coaches and supposedly he has some more surprises in store about the contestants. Should be interesting.

    Wow, that's very cool. The live finale airs in early December, so I guess it'll start in October?

    I read somewhere that since Kimbo would bring in high ratings that they were structuring the competition so that he would have a "fairly" easy path to the finals in order to keep ratings high (they wouldnt want to see him bow out early and lose the draw).

    I read the same article on mmajunkie

    They basically said they will have him fight later in first round to keep ratings high. Although if you lose you still stay in the house. And Dana White has said nothing good about Kimbo over the past 2-3 years so I don't know.

    They say the show isn't scripted so we'll see. They also are letting in 4 former NFL players on. So that's 5 fighters we know so far. We'll see who the other 10 are.

    I would think Kimbo would be a first pick. If he is lucky he'll get picked by Rampage, his new camp is pretty good.

    Dana always said the only way he would let Kimbo into the UFC is if he was in the UF...no big surprise there...but i am curious to see the NFL players.
