Fighters travel to Las Vegas with one dream, one goal - to become The Ultimate Fighter.
Determination, Discipline, Excellence.
These young men are accomplished athletes, disciplined in a wide range of mixed martial arts that includes wrestling, boxing, judo, Jiu-Jitsu, karate and kickboxing. Each has the dream, the hope, and the will to fight in an Ultimate Fighting Championship event. Only one fighter from each of the two weight classes will succeed with the challenge.
During the show the competitors will take their training to a higher level. They will be brought to Las Vegas where the UFC brand has its National Training Center. For the next seven weeks the competitors will be under the strict supervision of two successful and famous UFC fighters and trainers.
The competitors will endure the most grueling training and intense pressure of their lives. They will train together, live together, and fight against each other inside and outside of the storied UFC Octagon. The men are split into two teams and compete against each other within their weight classes to avoid elimination.
At the end of each week, one fighter from each team must fight in the Octagon to avoid being eliminated from the competition until only two remain in each weight division. In the end, The Ultimate Fighter will be decided by a competition match -- a head-to-head fight to the finish inside the Octagon.
The weak are eliminated... The strong will survive... Only one will be left standing from each weight class... The Ultimate Fighter… Expand
