Highly touted Canadian prospect Alex Garcia joins field vying for TUF 13 title

The UFC’s crop of TUF 13 talent will feature at least two undefeated up-and-comers with a history of avoiding the judges’ scorecards, as it appears 23-year old Alex Garcia will join Myles Jury among the group of individuals competing for an opportunity to become Ultimate Fighter Season 13 champion.

Five Ounces of Pain learned of Garcia’s addition from a source close to the situation.

A training partner of Georges St. Pierre’s in Montreal at the Tristar Gym, Garcia is considered to be one of the hottest prospects north of the border. He is 6-0 thus far since turning pro about eighteen months with a trio of both TKOs and submissions under his belt. His last in-ring appearance resulted in a Rear-Naked Choke of Tyler Jackson at “Ringside MMA – Payback” in November, the fifth first-round finish of Garcia’s young career.

In addition to Garcia, Five Ounces revealed earlier this week 10-2 Tony Ferguson and 4-1 Zach Davis would also be part of this season’s crew. Fans can find out how the four will fare, and whether they’ll fight for Brock Lesnar’s or Junior dos Santos’ team, when TUF 13 hits the airwaves on March 30.
