A new season of “The Ultimate Fighter” — “The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated,” also known as TUF 27 — premieres on April 18, 2018. This season of the long-running UFC reality show will be coached by UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, with a cast of undefeated lightweights and featherweights taking center stage in the season’s tournament.
The most experienced fighter on the season in the lightweight division is Allan Zuniga of Costa Rica, who brings a 13-0 record into the TUF house. In the featherweight division, California’s Tyler Diamon and Arkansas’ Bryce Mitchell will be entering the season with a 9-0 mark.
The season will come to an end on July 6, 2018, at the Pearl Theatre of the Palms Casino Resort in Paradise, Nevada, when the champion in each weight class is crowned. The winner in each division will earn a six-figure UFC contract.
Miocic and Cormier will then face off in a heavyweight title fight at UFC 226 on July 7, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of the promotion’s International Fight Week.
