The eighth season of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter reality series finished taping last month and will air Sept. 17.
The show will feature Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Frank Mir as the head coaches of Team Nogueira and Team Mir respectively, and will follow the two fighters as they each attempt to guide 8 lightweights and 8 light heavyweights through two 16-man tournaments. The two will then compete against one another for the UFC heavyweight championship on December 27 at the UFC’s annual New Years Eve event.
