Cast Announced for season 12 of “The Ultimate Fighter”

golden-gear-ads-narrowSample Ad1

The 12th season of Spike TV’s popular original series, “The Ultimate Fighter,” will feature 28 of the best up-and-coming mixed martial artists in the lightweight division (155 lbs) competing for a six-figure contract with the UFC (none of which are pictured above since that is the season 10 cast). From Broken Arrow, OK to Los Angeles, CA, to Manchester, England, the 28 fighters, with a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, have all gathered in Las Vegas with one goal — to become the next “The Ultimate Fighter.” As in prior seasons, 14 of these competitors will win a preliminary bout to gain a place in the Ultimate Fighter House, one step closer to their ultimate goal, whereas the losers of these bouts are sent home.

UFC welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre, and the number one contender to his belt, Josh Koscheck, will serve as coaches this season. The two will square off as coaches during the 12 week run of the show, and will later meet inside the Octagonâ„¢ with the welterweight title on the line at a UFC pay-per-view event. The new season premieres Wednesday, September 15, 2010.
