The ladies will vie for the first-ever 115-pound division title on the twentieth season of "The Ultimate Fighter."
TUF 20, which is set to begin in May of the new year, will feature the first-ever all-female cast in the history of the UFC's long-standing reality show franchise, including Invicta FC strawweight champ Carla Esparza and Bellator vet Felice Herrig.
UFC President Dana White revealed the names of the ladies coming over from the Invicta FC roster, including Alex Chambers, Claudia Gadelha, Bec Hyatt, Emily Kagan, Juiliana Lima, Rose Namajunas, Tecia Torres, Paige Van Zant and Joanne Caldwerood.
White says the show might not be coached by 115-pound females.
"The landscape changes quickly. We'll figure out who will coach them as we get closer to the date," White said. "More than likely it will probably be men, but it could be women."
In other women's MMA news, Shayna Baszler says the fact that Julianna Pena won season 18 of "The Ultimate Fighter" helps her own career because beating her will be that much sweeter when she finally gets the rematch.
"The initial thing that I felt when Julianna won was, yes, now it will be sweet justice when we rematch," Baszler said. "Because it's a jump back. It's not like I have to beat this person and this person and this person and this person and this person. If [Jessica] Rakoczy had won, realistically, I'd need a rematch with Julianna and to fight Rakoczy in order for people to understand who the ‘Queen of Spades' is, but now it's like screw it. I can just jump straight to the top and get that rematch and it's all good. It's good for me career-wise, I guess, that she won."
