Warning do not read this if you don’t want to know what happens Wednesday Night during the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter Season 11. Did Spike today let the cat out of the bag by posting the picture with the 14 guys by their coaches? We all should know by now the cast is made up of 28 fighters as the UFC has been running promos for the show now for a few weeks. Those 28 fighters will have to fight their way into the house as had been done in prior seasons, so 14 fighters will be living in the house and the teams will be 7 on 7. There will be 7 first round fights leaving 7 winners moving onto the next round, here is this years twist. The coaches will then choose 2 fighters to fight in a wild card fight to fill that 8th spot in the 2nd round. The 8 will fight leaving us with 4 fighters left in the semi-finals with the winners in the two semi’s moving onto fight live for the 6 figure contract.
Here is how the cast in the house looks ( You have been warned)
[update] These are the 14 fighters that make it into the house, but there might be some fun had by the UFC and Spike regarding the teams. Last season the fighters picture with the coaches and fighters were way off from what the actual teams were. So this promo picture could be the same thing with the fight not actually on that coaches team.
