Dana White: The Ultimate Fighter Moving To FOX Sports 1 In September

As most hinted at, the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter will air on FOX Sports 1 in September, UFC president Dana White announced Saturday.

White confirmed the change from FX to the new all-sports network during The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale from Las Vegas.

Ronda Rousey, the UFC female bantamweight champion, will coach opposite Cat Zingano on the reality series. Zingano defeated Miesha Tate to secure both the title shot and coaching gig.

FOX Sports 1 will launch in August. Rousey and Zingano will coach both male and female bantamweight hopefuls.

The Ultimate Fighter will debut Wednesday, September 4 on FS1. It will also move back from the 10 p.m. ET time slot.
