Despite reports stating otherwise, FX is letting everyone know that The Ultimate Fighter is not heading back to Wednesday nights.
In a message left with MMAFighting.com, Dominic Pagone, the Vice President of Media Relations for FX, stated that TUF will not be on Wednesdays beginning in January.
“FX has not announced the official date or night that the next installment of TUF will air, however it is highly unlikely it will air Wednesday nights. The official announcement will be coming in the next two or three weeks.”
Malki Kawa, the manager for Jon Jones, and UFC president Dana White both informed the media on Wednesday that the program had a set day of the week to air. Jones is currently filming the next season with Chael Sonnen.
