The fourteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter will kick off on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a special two-hour premiere featuring all of the preliminary fights in their entirety.

This season marks the final one on Spike TV. Following TUF 14, the series moves over to FX as part of the UFC’s new deal with the Fox family of networks. It will then be re-branded The Ultimate Fighter Live.

But until then, tune in as 32 mixed martial arts competitors begin the quest to advance into the The Ultimate Fighter house.  Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 28, new episodes will premiere at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

For the first time in franchise history, the bantamweight (145) and featherweight (135) weight classes will be showcased. Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Michael “The Count” Bisping will compete as coaches this season and will eventually meet in the Octagon at The Ultimate Fighter Finale in December.
