Elimination rounds abandoned for TUF 13, show to start with fourteen fighters

The forthcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, TUF 13 will begin with just fourteen cast members, removing the need for an elimination round in the opening weeks on SPIKE TV as the past few seasons.

The news comes via a source close to the situation adding that the “wild card” selections will still remain in place for this season.

Filming for this season begins later this week, with the first episode set for March. This coaches will be former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar and current UFC heavyweight number one contender, Junior dos Santos.
