When Amir Sadollah beat C.B. Dollaway to win The Ultimate Fighter title, that made seven completed seasons of the reality show. Filming for season 8 with Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira as coaches has also wrapped up. The show is expected to debut sometime in September.

Now, we can expect many more seasons of the show to air in the future.

We will have twelve seasons of the Ultimate Fighter,” said Dana White, “We just finished shooting season 8.”

White still believes the show is great for grooming future UFC participants.

Ultimate Fighter is an amazing training camp for up and coming fighters,” said White.

With ratings continuing to drop over the past few seasons, it will be interesting to see if serious changes are made with the format. Besides format changes, The Ultimate Fighter needs to bring in higher caliber fighters. The UFC may be forced to spend more money to bring the guys in, but better talent will create better fights which will create better ratings.

Also, with Forrest Griffin winning the most coveted title in the UFC – the light heavyweight championship, I am interested to see if ratings go up based on Griffin’s win. Griffin’s victory definitely validated the credibility of the show. The victory proved that investing our time in the fighters can have a big-time payoff down the line.
