The Ultimate Fighter Will Now Be LIVE On Fox


All i can say is “Wow”. The television show that brought the sport to where it is today will now go LIVE! It launched the careers of Forrest Griffin, Josh Koscheck, Diego Sanchez, Rashad Evans and many many more.

The press conference today which announced the partnership between Fox and the UFC was monumental for the organization. When The Ultimate Fighter moves over to Fox they are making a fresh start and making the show live.

There will be a two hour season premiere with fighters facing off in an all or nothing fight. After coaches pick their teams, they choose who’s eligible for each bout and the audience gets to have a voice in selecting who will fight as well. Each episode will be a countdown to the fight. The raw live aftermath of the winners and losers will be brought home as well. After 12 episodes of live fights, the season culminates in an all-live finale to crown the next champion.

How cool is it that the fans will now have an opportunity to decide which two fighters will duke it out on live tv?
