As another season of The Ultimate Fighter wraps up, the UFC starts the marketing campaign for the next TUF U.S. season. If you somehow haven’t heard, Jon Jones will be coaching against the brash Chael Sonnen for TUF 17. Following the season end, as usual, the coaches will look to square off. The two are set for a title fight on April 27th. As for their pre-recorded coaching duties – that will be available to watch, starting Tue. Jan 22nd at 8ET/PT on the FX Network.
As we’ve seen in interviews, tweets and promos, Sonnen is looking to verbally poke the champ throughout the season, but we’ve seen no signs of true aggravation by either man as we’ve seen in drama filled seasons like Evans vs. Rampage. Should the banter make for good television to the casual fan is yet to be seen.
