Rumored TUF 25 cast features stars, Joe Stevenson, Junie Browning, Julian Lane, more

Over the past 24 seasons of the Ultimate Fighter, UFC staff and television network officials, whether it be Spike, FOX, or FS1, have consistently tried to bring something new, something that would draw in fans, and keep them watching.

There have often been talks of the show fizzling out or losing interest, but then it seems to pick right back up again.

One new idea that has been floating around for the 25th season is an “All-Star” cast.  Some of the names that have been thrown around for TUF 25 are below.  Some you may remember more than others, some not so much for their fighting styles, but their in-house behavior.  We will have to see if age has changed any of the attitudes and personalities expressed by fighters like Junie Browning or Julian Lane.Rumored TUF 25 cast features stars, Joe Stevenson, Junie Browning, Julian Lane, more

Joe Stevenson is probably the most decorated fighter on the list.  He once challenged B.J. Penn for the UFC lightweight title and has since fought for multiple organizations since leaving the UFC.

The list below is not confirmed but is rumored.  It is still uncertain as to why some of the names on the list are there, as they are currently under contract with the UFC anyway.  It is also rumored that the season will be contested at welterweight.
