UFC 119: Stacked Full of The Ultimate Fighter Talent and a Playboy Bunny
Saturday’s UFC 119 is stacked full of talent from The Ultimate Fighter reality series, and maybe a Playboy Bunny.
Back when the UFC started their show The Ultimate Fighter it had a sense that they weren’t sure if it would be a hit or if the fighters that they found through the show would eventually contribute to the UFC as a whole. UFC 119 shows just how far the show as come and how the fighters have changed the UFC while becoming celebs themselves.
In sports often times what goes around comes around. That statement rings most true in MMA when often the difference between winning a fight and losing it can be seconds. Even the best fighters often have a few loses on their record. In MMA if you get caught or make a mistake you could lose in a heartbeat.
With UFC 119 what has gone around comes around as several fighters with connections so The Ultimate Fighter take to the ring and former ring girl and Playboy Playmate Holly Madison resurfaces with rumors surrounding her and current Ultimate Fighter Coach Josh Koscheck‘s relationship.
On the UFC 119 card are Matt Mitrione, Matt Serra, Chris Lytle, Melvin Guillard, Jeremy Sephens, C.B. Dollaway and Ryan Bader who were all contestants on The Ultimate Fighter. That is to say out of the main card and preliminary cards half the fighters come from The Ultimate Fighter. Frank Mir, one of the contestants in the main event, has served as a couch on The Ultimate Fighter bringing the total to eight out of fourteen fighters with connections to TUF.
While UFC119 is set to go this Saturday, the current season of The Ultimate Fighter is airing now. One of the coaches, Josh Koscheck, is a former TUF contestant who has become a well known UFC star. It is rumored that he is currently dating former Playboy Playmate Holly Madison. Madison works in Las Vegas which is where TUF shoots and the two have been seen out on the town together a few times. Koscheck is set to face off with George St. Pierre in UFC 124.
Often times the UFC has the current coaches of TUF ringside at events so they can interview them between fights. There is no guarantee that Koscheck will be there, but there are rumors swirling that Holly Madison very well may be. She recently did a very sexy photo shoot for UFC magazine and in the past she has been an honorary ring girl. She might surprise the crowd and make a come back as a ring girl for this event (although there is nothing but rumors at this time).
What has gone around has come back around. What started out as an experiment for an MMA reality show has gone on to turn out some of the UFC‘s best and most popular fighters. UFC 119 is packed full of TUF alumni and they might just bring with them a former contestant and current coach as well as a Playboy Bunny.
