Canada’s Kaillie Humphries created a bit of buzz with this tweet on Tuesday:

Yes, the two-time Olympic bobsled champion is going to the “Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale” in Quebec City in April. She will not be fighting, though.

“As Kaillie is such a big fan, she is coming to the Quebec event and will get her first taste of training (but won’t be fighting),” her agent said in an email Wednesday.

Her training is set for April 13, three days before the TUF Nations Finale event between Canada and Australia.

The well illustrated bio card in Humphries’ tweet includes a 10-1 record, but that was fabricated. The card was created for fun.
