The next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” will debut on September 14th with a two hour premiere and the UFC has announced the 32 fighters that will be on this seasons reality show.
All of the fighters are in the welterweight division and the premiere episode will be the 16 elimination fights that will get the fighters into the TUF House. The entire season will last 13 weeks and air on FX on Friday nights at 10 p.m. ET.
The champion will be crowned at the finale on December 15th and the main event of the fight card will be a fight between this seasons coaches as Roy Nelson meets Shane Carwin.
The two heavyweight fighters have already started their feud on Twitter and UFC President Dana White has said the interaction on the debut episode between them is interesting.
“Carwin and Nelson are two guys who just can’t stand each other and Roy and I haven’t exactly seen eye to eye either – he’s been a nightmare for me to work with on this show with all his stupid BS,” said White.
