The UFC will hold a special tryout to provide spots on season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter for female strawweights in April.
The tryouts will take place April 28 in Las Vegas. Fighters can check the official site for all the rules and regulations to attending the event.
UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez will serve as coaches of the first-ever all-female season. The tournament will also see the crowning of a champion in the division.
Late in 2013, the UFC signed 11 fighters to compete in the tourney, including Carla Esparza, Felice Herrig, Tecia Torres and Bec Hyatt. The remaining spots will be filled by those who attend the tryouts.
