The most iconic phrase in UFC history by Dana White. Amazingly, it has been 2 years since we saw The Ultimate Fighter season.

This year's season includes contenders from the bantamweight and middleweight divisions. This season’s coaches are none other than #2 rank Brian Ortega and current featherweight champion Alex Volkanoski.

The Ultimate Fighter first aired on the Bravo network in January 2015. It introduced Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell as coaches for the season. Characters make the show, so it's going to be interesting to see Brian and Alex on TV 24/7. It's a great fight at the end but I’m uncertain what kind of TV presence will hold for either of them. I don’t see them as drama queens, maybe the contenders will bring the drama.

Season 1
is one of the most memorable finales. Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar finale put UFC and TUF season on the map. 

Season 3 Brazil was another great season as far as drama with the coaches. We had such an intense atmosphere with Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen it created great TV drama.

Season 10 is another favorite with Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans as season coaches. Rampage is always entertaining and brought the drama to Rashad.
