The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale has been set for April 13 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will again take place at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The broadcast of the April fight card will remain on FX.
MMAJunkie first revealed the news earlier today.
The seventeenth iteration of the UFC’s reality series will feature 28 middleweights vying to become the next TUF champion. The show will feature several upgrades in production value and also be moved to 9PM on Tuesday evenings to serve in a coveted lead-in spot for FX’s critically acclaimed show Justified.
TUF 17 will be coached by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and number one contender Chael Sonnen. The two will battle a few short weeks later at UFC 159 in New Jersey. A cast list for the show was revealed yesterday.
