    i remember last summer there was talk about a japanese version of tuf, where they were gonna put gyms agaisnt each other but they were not going to share a house.

    does anyone know what ever came of this? i cant seem to find it on fight pass.

    thanks in advance if you take the time to help me out.

    i believe this was going to be vale tudo japan, with the winner getting a contract in much the same way as TUF but without the house format? sounds good to me

    can't see any further updates since though

    I wonder if Cung Le's debacle with Zuffa has had much to do with the progress into Asia?

    VTJ pulled out and the UFC was going to continue on their own. That's the last I've heard of it.

    female japanese TUF, where all the contestants are 40+ and 100lb except one 22 year old foreign woman cutting down from 145lb!
