The Ultimate Fighter returns on June 1 with new episodes set to drop weekly on ESPN+.

Season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter will feature UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and #2 ranked featherweight Brian Ortega. The season is aptly named “The Return of the Ultimate Fighter” after the iconic reality television show stopped production after The Ultimate Fighter: Heavy Hitters featuring coaches Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum was filmed in late 2018.

This season will feature 16 athletes in the men’s bantamweight and middleweight divisions.
