For the first time in it’s history the UFC’s Ultimate Fighter reality show is set to go international in 2011.
Dana White today revealed that there are three international versions of TUF planned for next year. At this stage it’s not clear which countries will play host to the shows, though White did rule out Canada for the time being.
In another first for the series these new international versions of the show won’t air on Spike TV, and it seems that there’s still work to be done to establish how they will air, with other broadcasting networks or perhaps even the internet being used instead.
“We’re going to figure out how to get them to everybody,” White assured MMAJunkie.
In addition to these shows the 13th season of TUF, which is set to begin filming early next year and will begin airing on March 30th, will appear on Spike TV as usual. Rumors continue to grow that Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva could be set to coach the season which features both welterweight and middleweight fighters.
