The UFC’s ‘Ultimate Fighter’ is about to return on its new network and with a new premise. The change? It’s now live fights. Tune-in March 9th for the series premiere of ‘TUF on FX Live,’ which will kick-off with a two-hour special.
Former WEC champ Urijah Faber will look to coach a team of up-and-comers against UFC champ Domick Cruz and his team of fellow newcomers in a tournament style, with the winner earning a six-figure contract. At the end of the season the two will complete a trilogy of battles on July 7 at UFC 148 in the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
