Meet the TUF 14 cast

Good lord, is that Tiki again?

The cast of “The Ultimate Fighter 14: Team Bisping vs Team Mayhem” was revealed today, set to premiere on Spike TV (for the last time) on September 21st.

Several of the recognizable names that tried out didn’t make the cut for whatever reason, but there’s still a couple relatively-known guys sprinkled amongst the expected crop of bushleaguers.  Micah Miller (Cole’s brother) went 2-2 in the WEC a few years back, and has also appeared in DREAM, Shine Fights, and Tachi Palace.  Bryan Caraway fought (and lost) in the WEC twice last year, and has also seen action in Strikeforce and EliteXC.  Matt Jaggers has appeared in both Bellator and Sengoku, the latter where he fell victim to subs by Marlon Sandro and The Korean Zombie.  Eric Marriott has fought for Bellator three times (including a loss to Joe Warren), as well as Titan Fighting and M-1 Global.

Unlike a few seasons back where some guys made their pro debuts on the finale card, thankfully none of this cast have less than 4 pro fights, and ten of them have more than 15.  I also notice that for once everyone’s quoted record matches their Sherdog listing exactly, and a couple guys appear to be stepping up from flyweight.

The full 32-man cast list complete with links to their records after the jump…
