Eighteen of the best mixed martial arts fighters, nine Heavyweights and nine Welterweights, have come from around the world to Las Vegas with one dream... to be named The Ultimate Fighter and given a contract in the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization.
During the competition, two world-renowned UFC champions, Matt Hughes and Rich Franklin, will train the fighters. The men will endure a grueling regimen of jiu-jitsu, judo, Muay Thai, karate, boxing and wrestling. The intense competition between the fighters will continue after they leave the gym, at The Ultimate Fighter House. These warriors will be forced to live with each other, knowing that any day they could be forced to fight each other in the UFC Octagon.
In each episode, the teams will compete in a physical challenge to determine who will have to fight. Legendary UFC Champion and Season One coach Randy Couture will design these challenges. They will combine old school training techniques with tests of brute strength. Once the opponents are chosen, the fight is on. They will train, weigh-in and face-off in three five minute rounds. At the end of each week, one fighter from each team must fightin the Octagon to avoid being kicked out of the UFC Training Center until only two remain in each weight division.
In the end, The Ultimate Fighter will be decided by a competition match -- a head-to-head fight to the finish inside the Octagon.
