TV’s Toughest Reality Series Hits Virgin 1, Sundays 11pm
The reality series which unleashed a new generation of UFC champions returns, but this time nations collide as the best 16 unsigned mixed martial artists in Great Britain go to war with the 16 best undiscovered American talents.
The fighters will live together and fight each other in an elimination tournament where one welterweight and one lightweight will be crowned the newest “Ultimate Fighter” and win a six-figure contract with the UFC.
Team UK will be coached by Britain’s leading UFC fighter and the winner of TUF Season 3, Michael ‘the Count’ Bisping. Dan Henderson, two-time Olympian and MMA legend, will lead the Americans into battle.
Bisping said: “The Americans look down on British MMA a little bit, but I’ve got a team that can potentially go in there and win the whole thing.”
Henderson said: “I represented my country twice in the Olympics and will be honoured to lead them to victory in The Ultimate Fighter.”
The Ultimate Fighter: Team USA v Team UK hits the airwaves every Sunday at 11pm on Virgin 1 and replays on Setanta Sports every Wednesday at 10pm.
