Dana White promises “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series will stick around as long as he’s with UFC after what he deemed a successful revival season of the long-running reality series.
After a two-year hiatus from the show, “The Ultimate Fighter 29” wrapped up this past weekend at UFC on ESPN 30, when Bryan Battle become the middleweight winner of the show while Ricky Turcios claimed the bantamweight crown.
At the conclusion of the event, UFC boss White said the show isn’t going anywhere, and he intends on running one season per calendar year for the foreseeable future. Even after 29 seasons, White still thinks “TUF” has an important place in the sport and is one of the best avenues in MMA when it comes to discovering prospects.
Is White right? And if he’s so adamant, are there elements of the show that can be upgraded or overhauled going into Season 30 in 2022?
Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of John Morgan, Nolan King, Danny Segura and Brian Garcia discuss that topic in this week’s episode of the roundtable show.
