The first live season of the UFC’s long-running reality series debuts March 9 on FX.
“The Ultimate Fighter 15″ features 32 lightweight and welterweight UFC hopefuls who will be coached by UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and upcoming opponent Urijah Faber.
Check out the first video preview of the season, which includes 16 live elimination-round fights on next month’s debut episode. If you win, you’re in the “TUF” house.
“TUF 15″ (which officials have dubbed “The Ultimate Fighter: LIVE”) is the first to air on FOX-owned FX and the first to air live fights. All 14 previous seasons aired on the UFC’s previous longtime home, Spike TV. The show has launched the careers of more than 100 UFC fighters and produced eventual champions such as Rashad Evans, Matt Serra and Forrest Griffin.
The show debuts at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a two-hour episode on FX. Subsequent episodes air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Cast members haven’t been announced, but a few fighters can be seen in the embedded preview video.
“TUF 14″ was the first season of the seven-year-old reality series to feature bantamweight and featherweight fighters. “TUF 15″ is the first to feature bantamweight coaches, who fight at UFC 148 in Las Vegas on Fourth of July weekend.
