LAS VEGAS – “The Ultimate Fighter” returned this week for its 27th season, and for the first time all the cast members are unbeaten heading into the show.
MMAjunkie recently sat down with all 16 cast members. Watch the video above to get to know lightweight Thailand Clark (7-0), a 28-year-old Kansas native who was always into combat sports. But when he made a concerted effort to get away from gang life and wanted to get in better shape, he embraced MMA. However, UFC President Dana White and Bellator officials initially didn’t reciprocate, which he explains in the above video.
“The Ultimate Fighter 27,” featuring UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier as coaches, airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FS1.
