The Ultimate Fighter Season 19 cast has been revealed ahead of the April 16 debut date on FOX Sports 1 with a two-hour special following the TUF Nations Finale with all the action kicking off at 10p ET.
The cast of 31 middleweights and light heavyweights will be coached by former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and fellow title holder BJ Penn ahead of their July 6 showdown to settle the long standing rivalry between the two competitors inside the Octagon. The fight will mark Penn’s first at featherweight while attempting to avenge two previous defeats to Edgar in past fights.
The new cast of 32 fights will compete on the show for a chance to earn the six-figure contract ahead of the finale airing on July 6 just 24 hours after the end of UFC 175 in Las Vegas.
