The Ultimate Fighter Series
Full Show Summary

When Dana White wanted to bring the mainstream’s attention to the sport of mixed martial arts, he and other owners of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) created The Ultimate Fighter in a quest to seek out the best of the best. There are other reality shows that put several different people in one place and make them live together. Others even have them compete with each other in various challenges to see who gets to stay on the show. There are not very many however, who have the residents of the home actually get into the arena and fight one another in mixed-martial arts matches to determine who stays, who goes, and who is The Ultimate Fighter. In each season, sixteen fighters from all over the country are chosen to take part, and all have to live together, train together, and ultimately, fight against one another. The contestants are divided by weight division, with eight in each category. The viewers get to watch the fighters train and also interact with one another. The contestants are also made to take part in various challenges that test their strength and endurance. Sometimes, failure can lead to elimination. As the season goes on, matches are fought and victors move on until only two remain, and then they go at it in final match whose winner receives the Ultimate Fighter title. The Ultimate Fighter is a show for anyone who appreciates what it takes to be a mixed-martial artist contender and also anyone who appreciates such a brutal and uncompromising show of athletics. For these contestants, anything less than the very best isn’t going to cut it, and they know they will have to train themselves mercilessly and be on the top of their game if they want a shot at being the winner.
