The UFC this week announced that along with its landmark programming deal with FOX will come some drastic changes to program formatting and presentation.
Off of Spike TV for the first time ever, the UFC’s reality show The Ultimate Fighter will now air on FX and will undergo a nice makeover before landing on its new home. On the new seasons of TUF, the show will be taped and edited weekly, with the end-of-episode fights to be aired live instead of tape-delayed. Along with that, the coaches will conduct their training camps during taping in order to be able to fight at the season finale. Mix in meaningful fan interaction and you’ve suddenly got the formula to shake up the stale formatting of The Ultimate Fighter.
Check out the first promo video for the new TUF below.
