For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past 5-years or so, and aren’t sure about what The Ultimate Fighter is exactly, please allow me to enlighten you. ‘TUF’ is a show kind of like an extreme version of ‘The Real World’ in the sense that the entire cast –with exception of the coaches – all live under the same roof with their every move being recorded for the world to see. But, here’s the difference, and what a difference it is, each of the cast members are there for a common purpose, which is to fight, and boyyy do they.

The fighters are divvied up into two teams, which, for season 12 are Team GSP (Georges St-Pierre) and Team Koscheck (Josh Koscheck), and then every week a member from each team is selected to fight. The fighter who wins lives to see another day – metaphorically speaking of course, this isn’t Mortal Combat you know – while the other fighter is sent packing. For the season finale the two remaining contestants duke it out against each other for a six-figure contract that guarantees them several fights in the UFC.
