Today Spike TV confirmed the news and provided additional details regarding the September 13 episode:

"Spike TV and the UFC have gathered together the marquee members of the first season 'The Ultimate Fighter,' the reality show that helped launched the UFC into the mainstream, for a series of interstitials to air as part of 'The Ultimate Fighter 1' marathon featuring all 12 episodes and the incredible finale on Saturday, September 13 (9:00 AM – 11:30 PM, ET/PT).

'The Ultimate Fighter' has introduced countless UFC contenders, and even two champions, to the mixed martial arts world. The notable 'Ultimate Fighter 1' alums will reconvene where it all took place, at the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas, to reflect on the highs and lows from their experience.

Moderated by Joe Rogan, the panel of fighters including UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin, Chris Leben, Stephan Bonnar, Josh Koscheck, Nate Quarry, Kenny Florian, Diego Sanchez, Bobby Southworth, and Mike Swick, will discuss how much their lives have changed since the show’s premiere, both professionally and personally. UFC President Dana White and host of the series will talk about the profound impact the show has had on his company and the sport of mixed martial arts."
