Mixed Martial Arts is a kind of sport that is a combination sport that includes wrestling, judo, boxing, karate, jujitsu and Muay Thai (which is Thai boxing), and various other disciplines in itself. This sport has recently been making a good name for itself, with the sports people engaging in it getting the deserved attention and also the increase in the number of sports championships for the sport.

The Ultimate Fighter is a show that shows athletes competing in MMA while staying together and thus giving us a glimpse of what their training and setting up goes before they actually go to the ring to compete. They are coming up with the latest season, their 31st season, and the fun is going to continue with the adrenaline at its all-time high with this show!

Ultimate Fighter is a combat sports show that highlights athletes fighting in the ring for a six-figure contract with the Ultimate Fighter Championship, famously known by the abbreviation UFC. Ultimate Fighter Championship is an American MMA production company that holds various championships, events, and reach outs to spread knowledge about the combat sport of MMA.

This show first premiered in 2005 and has been going on since then, with at least two seasons per year. The streaming platforms for this have changed, but the love that fans have for this absolutely hasn’t. There are a lot of iconic matches from MMA that were showcased in this reality show, but the one from the first season still has the title of being the most iconic match to have ever been seen in the history of MMA. If you haven’t guessed yet, it is the season finale match fought between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar.

The pattern followed for The Ultimate Fighter series is that there exist two coaches who train the fighters from different weight and technique categories. But these trains are not only responsible for training the participant athletes but also are to gear themselves up for the final match that the two coaches fight.

For the last season of the combat series, there was a competition between heavyweight and women’s flyweight groups with Amanda Nunes and Julianna Peña. It was a blasting success, and this season of The Ultimate Fight series is building up to be one, too, as the trailer for the series was enough to get everyone hyped.

It would be a sin not to tell you about the cast for this season, so here it is. For this season, there will be participant athletes from the Bantam and Heavy-Lifting categories, and the coaches for the two groups are Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor. There are eight athletes in each category, namely, Rico DiSciullo, Hunter Azure, Brad Katona, Trevor Wells, Timur Valiev, Cody Gibson, Mando Gutierrez and Carlos Vera for the Bantam category, and Jason Knight, Roosevelt Roberts, Aaron McKenzie, Nate Jennerman, Austin Hubbard, Lee Hammond, Kurt Holobaugh, Landon Quinones for the Heavy-Lifting Category.
