The Ultimate Fighter 5 Will Feature Two Teams of Fighters
Posted by UFC Junkie on March 15, 2007 at 11:00 am ET
The latest “all-lightweights” season of The Ultimate Fighter will feature two teams of fighters — not 16 fighters training and competing individually, as some fans speculated — according to an official press release from the UFC and Spike TV.
Granted, this is a minor point and barely news, but like other fans, I wondered if the 16 155-pound fighters might train as individuals while spending equal amounts of time with the show’s two coaches: Jens Pulver and B.J. Penn, two former UFC champs.
However, it appears that, as in seasons’ past, the 16 fighters will be broken into two teams of eight while training under one coach.
