The Ultimate Fighter To Continue as UFC Moves to ESPN
With the UFC’s move to ESPN next month, it looked like The Ultimate Fighter would finally be coming to an end after 13 years and 28 seasons.
However, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the reality show that helped put the UFC on the map will not be going away anytime soon. White said the show will be coming along from Fox to ESPN.
“The Ultimate Fighter is not going away anytime soon,” White said.
This comes with the news that the UFC will be opening a new state-of-the-art facility in Las Vegas next year. The facility, which will sit east of the UFC’s headquarters, will be 130,000 square feet, with 60,000 square feet dedicated to an arena that can host fights for programmings such as The Ultimate Fighter and Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
“The design of the new facility that we’re building has The Ultimate Fighter’ in mind,” White said. “We have the money for it, so that’s already done. It’s part of the money we have right now for content.”
