It was announced on UFC Fight Night : Rodriguez VS Penn that newly crowned bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt and former champion T.J Dillashaw will be the next coaches on the newest season of The Ultimate Fighter. This season will feature welterweights.
This season will have some previous Ultimate Fighter winners, previous fighters who have competed on the show and lost and at least one current UFC fighter. This will no doubt be an interesting season. Cody Garbrandt is a bit of a hot head and these two have a history. T.J is a former member of Team Alpha Male and left the camp while he had the belt.
Cody originally wanted a super fight or a rematch with Dominick Cruz. T.J has taken out a couple top contenders and has earned a shot to reclaim the bantamweight title. Cody Garbrandt has found his new opponent and it’s T.J Dillashaw.
