Spike TV has issued a press release officially announcing several details pertaining to the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter 6.
The season premiere is set for Wednesday, September 19 at 11 p.m. following a live telcast of UFC Fight Night. The show will then begin showing in its regular time slot the following week at 10 p.m. ET.
The live season finale will take place sometime in December with the coaches from the show, Matt Serra and Matt Hughes, expected to fight on pay-per-view soon after.
The official cast is as follows:
* Matt Arroyo (who trains with “Monsta Lobsta” and Brent Hatley at Gracie Tampa… Arroyo will also be doing weekly day-after recaps on The Bubba the Love Sponge Show)
* Daniel Barrera
* Blake Bowman (I keep hearing he has a lot of personality)
* Mac Danzig (who I consider the favorite to win the show)
* Paul Georgieff
* Richie Hightower
* John Kolsci
* Troy Mandaloniz
* Billy Miles
* Roman Mitichyan (a Hollywood stuntman and part-time actor)
* Dorian Price
* Jared Rollins
* Ben Saunders
* Joe Scarola
* George Sotiropoulis
* Tommy Speer
I saw a preview clip of the show at UFC 74 on Saturday (I’m assuming it aired on the PPV?) and saw a lot of potential drama taking place. The clip did a good job of getting me excited to see the upcoming season.
