Once more the UFC goes to the trough of reality television, and this time it’s for the sake of finding a flyweight prospect.
Here’s the UFC’s press release on the 24th season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The search for the next UFC® title contender will unfold on season 24 of The Ultimate Fighter® as 16 flyweight competitors will compete for a shot at the 125-pound world championship, with the winner to face the UFC flyweight champion at The Ultimate Fighter Finale in December. Tryouts are scheduled for Monday, April 25 in Las Vegas at Palace Station and are open to all competitors aged 21-34 with at least three professional fights and a winning record. The next season of The Ultimate Fighter will begin filming in June and will premiere on FS1 on Wednesday, August 31.
World class coaches, guest coaches, and former opponents of the current champion will be brought in throughout the season to break down film and help the contestants tailor their training to a game plan designed to help them become the next UFC champion. The two finalists will compete in the final episode of the season and the winner will face the flyweight champion at the Finale just days after the season concludes.
So… are you going to tune in and watch?
