The Ultimate Fighter Live on FX Results & Recap
To start this season’s 2.5 hour debut on FX Dana White and Jon Anik did their due diligence to educate the new audience on FX with a brief summary of what people watching at home can expect out of the show.
In a surprise turn of events UFC president Dana White told the 32 fighters selected to start off this season that their elimination bouts will only be one-round.
The five most important minutes of their lives and if they can finish their opponent in the allotted time they are awarded a $5,000.00 bonus.
