MMA on Tap has learned that TKO and IFL veteran Chris Clements may have been one of the contestants chosen to participate as part of the cast for the upcoming seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, which is scheduled to begin airing on Spike TV in April.
A source close to Clements informed us that the Chatam, Ontario native may have been selected for the show. The source also mentioned that Clements was selected for last season’s show but was unable to participate due to problems making the 170 lb. limit and was invited to try for the upcoming season, which will feature fighters competing at middleweight.
After being submitted by Joey Guel in his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2005, Clements went ahead to post a four-fight winning streak under the TKO Championship Fighting banner, where he defeated Martin Grandmont along the way.
Clements came up short in his last two bouts, being stopped by Rory Markham at an IFL event in August and then failing in an attempt to win the vacant TKO welterweight title as he was submitted by Jesse Bongfeldt at TKO 30: Apocalypse in September.
