Fans of the 209, Gilbert Melendez has done his part to get the polarizing Diaz brothers, Nick and Nate, on the absolutely talent-filled all-female edition of TUF. Here's what Melendez told Shootmedia about his possible team:
"You better believe I called Nick and Nate Diaz already and asked them to make some time to come out and make an appearance and spend some time out there in Vegas."
"For sure I’ve got to go with my big brother Jake Shields since he brings so much experience to the table. He’s been here for so long, and no one outworks that guy."
Also joining will be Melendez's Muay Thai coach, Jongsanan Woodenman.
On the 20th season of the Ultimate Fighter, we will see some of the best female strawweights in the world compete for the chance to be the first UFC Strawweight Champion. The UFC has already hand-picked 11 strawweights from Invicta FC, who I think can become the NCAA of Women's Mixed Martial Arts. The season is set to air in May with Gilbert Melendez coaching against Anthony Pettis.
