UFC to sign 11 115-pound women in Invicta deal, big details on TUF

UFC announced today the signing of 11 women in a deal with Invicta FC, taking over the contracts of the following 115-pounders:

*Invicta champion Carla Esparza

*No. 1 contender Claudia Gadelha

*Felice Herrig, a somewhat charismatic fighter well known to hardcore fans from smaller circuits

*Joanne Calderwood, an undefeated fighter from Scotland

*Tecia Torres, a fighter who has a great style who stole the show at the last Invicta card.  She has the "it" factor

*Rose Namajunas

*Rowdy Bec Hyatt from Australia

*Emily Kagan

*Alex chambers

*Julianna Lima

*Paige Van Zant

The women will debut in the 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter, set to debut in the fall -- the first all-women's season of the show. They will compete in a tournament on the show as usual, and the live final at the end of the year will determine the UFC's first women's 115-pound champion.

Five more fighters will be signed for the show, which will be a 16-person tournament and the first time a TUF show will crown a UFC world champion.
