They come from all over the globe, spanning Brooklyn to Israel ,
including far-off locales such as Russia , Nova Scotia , England , and
Hawaii . Their diverse backgrounds range from a former Division 1
college football player to a CIA recruiter and include the brother of
"The Ultimate Fighter 2" winner.

For these 32 up-and-coming
mixed martial arts fighters, there is one goal, to win a six-figure
contract with the preeminent mixed martial arts organization in the
world, The Ultimate Fighting Championship.
