The Ultimate Fighter LIVE debuts on Friday, March 9 as part of a two-hour season premiere beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The show will then air for one hour at 10 p.m. ET/PT every Friday for 13 weeks on FX.

UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and “The California Kid” Urijah Faber will serve as coaches on the upcoming season, with lightweight and welterweight contestants competing for two, six-figure UFC contracts.

“We’re producing ground-breaking television with The Ultimate Fighter LIVE and we can’t wait to kick this season off with FX in March,” UFC President Dana White said. “It’s going to be can’t-miss TV. Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber are two incredible personalities who also happen to be two of the best fighters in the world. They genuinely dislike each other and I expect this to make for the best season yet.”
