The UFC’s program THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER is now 26 seasons old. There have been plenty of ups, and many many downs, with oodles and oodles of more drama than in junior high schools. But on August 30th on FS1 the season debuts. It’s highly doubtful that with the 16 female flyweights the drama will be anywhere near last seasons with coaches CODY GARBRANDT AND TJ DILLASHAW. However; with lightweights EDDIE ALVAREZ and JUSTIN GAETHJE leading the way there surely will be some; and it has nothing to do with just putting 16 women in one house. The season is underway and already has its favorites leading the way.


They include: former bantamweight standout LAUREN MURPHY, Invicta’s flyweight champion  BARB HONCHAK, along with TUF 18 fighter “THE HAPPY WARRIOR” ROXANNE MODAFFERI. Some names that you should absolutely not sleep on are : RACHEL OSTOVICH,  22 year old 7-4 MONTANA STEWART, and EMILY WHITMIRE. The rest of the cast shapes up like :  ARIEL BECKDEANNA BENNETTSIJARA EUBANKSSHANA DOBSONMELINDA FABIANKARINE GEVORGYANCHRISTINA MARKSNICCO MONTANOGILLIAN ROBERTSON, and MAIA STEVENSON. All 16 women are absolutely talented enough to win and become the newest to wear UFC gold; but only one will !! That goes down at the finale on December 1st in the Park Theater in Vegas.

Now; should you love the competition involved but outright hate the drama the show for you is DANA WHITE’S TUESDAY CONTENDER SERIES which airs on UFC fight pass. It too films in the “TUF HOUSE”; which is a serious bone of contention to many fans. Five fights, 1-2 UFC contracts, and the only drama is watching the winners sit in a room waiting to hear if they’ve reached their ultimate goal. To be in the UFC.
