    Haven't heard anything, but the Canadian trials were a little after the Aussie, so it may be a little longer.

    Considering they probably wont be doing the elimination fights, 4 from each weight-class is all each country needs to bring to the table.

    TS, Cheers for the info. Surprised at those two 36yr old men involved, if one of them was to win it, the UFC would get maybe 2 years of work from them!

    Isnt that Tyler Manawaroa kid supposed to be involved.

    As for Canada...I did see an article on who showed up for tryouts.

    Elias Theodorou was there. Which means, they may as well just present the MW trophy to him right now. Could quite easily win a Bellator tournament or go straight into the UFC, IMO.

    Np Tyler was going to end up trying out as a welterweight but ended up trialing as a middleweight I'm pretty confident he will be in the TUF house.

    Right - I guess being a youngster, he's gonna be filling out anyway and it might be hard to keep his weight down?

    He might well be a threat to Theodorou then - I had Tyler being a major player in the WW bracket this season!

    Lol. Team Canada will probably say something like why is Bieber representing Australia?

    Corey Nelson had to back out last minute. I'm sure we will see him on a future TUF. My guess for team OZ right now are

    Welterweights
    Jake Matthews
    Richard Walsh

    Middleweights
    Priscus Fogagnolo
    Vik Grujic
    Daniel Kelly
    Tyler Manawaroa

    Both Nelson and Steven Kennedy wont be on TUF Nations even though they are our best fighters : (

    Anyone know who might be on Team Canada?

    Feels like Tyler Manawaroa vs Elias Theodoro is fait accompli for TUF Nations MW finale.
