While the UFC is auditioning three separate weight classes, the final cast won’t be determined until the fighters have been chosen. It appears, however, at least one of the weight classes in the new season will feature a women’s division at either strawweight or bantamweight.
There’s no word from the UFC yet on potential coaches for "The Ultimate Fighter" season 23, but with a huge slate of fights scheduled in December, the candidates may come from one of a number of cards coming up.
In December alone, three separate UFC titles (middleweight, lightweight and featherweight) will be up for grabs and then at UFC 195 on Jan. 2, 2016, Robbie Lawler will also defend his welterweight title.
"The Ultimate Fighter" season 22 is still currently airing on FS1 with coaches Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber leading their teams all the way to the finale that will take place on Dec. 11 in Las Vegas.
