"The Ultimate Fighter" is apparently moving to Tuesday. |
An advertisement in the new issue of "UFC 360," formerly known as "UFC Magazine," declares the upcoming 17th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" debuts on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 9 p.m. ET.
UFC and FX officials have yet to make an official announcement, however representatives from both companies have since confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (MMAjunkie.com). UFC President Dana White was a little more coy.
"That day sounds good to me," White told MMAjunkie.com.
"TUF 17," which began filming in October and wraps in the coming weeks, is expected to feature middleweight fighters. However, UFC and FX officials have yet to reveal the cast. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen serve as coaches on the show and are expected to meet in the headlining event of an April UFC pay-per-view event.
Awesome, because there's never shit on the TV on Tuesdays (at least for me), other than UFC Tonight and Ultimate Insider..
