The Ultimate Fighting Championship made a historic deal with FOX networks earlier this year. One of the biggest stories to come out of that deal is the new Ultimate Fighter format. Each year will feature two seasons of TUF, which each weekly fight airing live on FX. The Friday night show will feature a wrap up of the previous week, leading into the live fight, followed by what has been deemed the aftermath portion. This means that for 26 Fridays next year, there will be a live fight on FX. The finales will also air live on FX.
Today the UFC announced that TUF 15 will feature lightweight (155 lb) and welterweight (170 lb) fighters. The coaches have yet to be named. Interested in trying out? Take a look at the application after the jump.
