The historic 20th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” begins next week and features 16 strawweight women.
But in a first, the winner of the season will become a UFC champion. The promotion’s inaugural 115-pound titleholder will be crowned at the show’s finale.
Go behind the scenes of the “TUF 20″ strawweight tryouts from earlier this year in Las Vegas, where UFC President Dana White and matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby whittled the field down to get eight final contestants for the show to join eight who had moved over from Invicta FC.
Then don’t miss the season premiere of “The Ultimate Fighter” on Sept. 10 on FOX Sports 1.
