According to Five Ounces of Pain, Alberta’s Nick Ring will be a contestant on the Ultimate Fighter 11.  Ring is a Canadian Welterweight who has been flying under the radar but now will be his time to shine.

Top MMA News heard rumors of the 10-0 Ring being offered both an Ultimate Fighter spot and a possible Bellator spot early in January but were unable to confirm the rumor before Ring entered the TUF House.  His absence has long been noted and it was expected he had chosen The Ultimate Fighter.

Ring, the fifth ranked Canadian Middleweight, is an undefeated fighter who has fought once on Bellator in Season One where he beat Chilo Gonzalez.  He last fought at Aggression’s first card where he defeated Yannick Galipeau.

    Watching Nick train all these years and come back from injuries, that halted his rise in Pride, its going to be great to see Nick show what he can really do.

    I can say this, Nick Ring will be the most watched guy on the show. Finally a Canadian Representative that is not a complete push over like Thacker and Macdonald from the other seasons. Ring stands a high chance of making it to the finals of the show. Without Matt Major and Brian Baker on it what would of been huge competition it looks even more likely. All though with those two it defiantly would of been one of the highest skilled seasons if not the highest skilled field of fighters yet on the show. Training with the likes of Chuck, Tito, Shields ect. will only help Nick’s skills in the long run with so many great training partners and teachers. This will only help his extremely well rounded skill set that he is walking into the show with.
