UFC announced tryouts for Team Australia on 6/12 in Sydney, and for Team U.K. on 6/15 in London, looking at doing a bantamweight (135 pound) and welterweight (170) weight classes. All fighters trying out must have had three verifiable professional fights with at least two wins.
The show, called "Australia vs. U.K. - The Smashes" is expected to air in the fall with the show being taped in Sydney and the finals possibly in Brisbane. Broadcast details for the show were not announced.
