DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – The 20th season of The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s “Ultimate Fighter” reality franchise is breaking ground on several fronts.
For one, it’s the first season to feature an all women cast.
For another, it’s the debut of the women’s 115 pound straw weight division, joining the 135 pound women led by champion Ronda Rousey.
Thirdly, this season’s winner will be crowned the inaugural women’s straw weight champion, which amounts to much higher stakes than just the customary six figure contract that past seasons’ winners have claimed. In fact, all of the women on TUF 20 enter the season as contracted UFC fighters, and no one has impressed early as much as Randa Markos.
Listen to Richard Hunter talk to Randa Markos about her first episode upset of Tecia Torres.
