Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) made good on its promise to bring a women’s 125-pound division to the Octagon, beginning with season 26 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), dubbed “A New World Champion.”
As expected, TUF 26 will be coached by lightweight contenders Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje and debut on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Weds., Aug. 30, 2017. At the end of the twelfth and final episode, two remaining flyweights (from a field of 16) will compete in the live finale to determine the inaugural champion.
Similar to what TUF 20 did for strawweights.
Alvarez and Gaethje will also face off at the end of the season; however, it is not yet known if they will headline the live finale or be slotted for a future pay-per-view (PPV) card. As we’ve seen in seasons past, a lot can happen over the next six months to both the fighters and the division.
