Check out THIS article via MMA Junkie that discusses the Ultimate Fighter switching back to the old TV format. With a new season on the way the show, which despite it’s popularity failed to reach ratings as high as previous seasons on Spike TV. Dana White has hinted the show will switch back to it’s old format, but remain on Friday nights. This also means fighters would only have to film the show for six weeks, opposed to the grueling twelve weeks this season. Many people are conflicted if the LIVE format is the issue, or if it’s having the show on a Friday night. Personally I like the LIVE fights, I think Friday night is just a tough time slot to see good ratings. What do you think?
