Dana White has promised that “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series will continue as long as he is with the UFC, citing the popularity of the long-running reality series’ resurrection season.
After a two-year break, “The Ultimate Fighter 29” concluded this past weekend at UFC on ESPN 30 with Bryan Battle winning the middleweight division and Ricky Turcios winning the bantamweight division.
UFC president Dana White claimed after the event that the program isn’t going away and that he plans to run one season per calendar year for the foreseeable future. White believes “TUF” has a significant place in the sport and is one of the best paths in MMA for uncovering talents, even after 29 seasons.
Is White correct in his assessment? Is there anything about the program that can be improved or revamped for Season 30 in 2022, if he’s that adamant?
In this week’s episode of the roundtable show, our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of John Morgan, Nolan King, Danny Segura, and Brian Garcia discuss the issue.
