The Ultimate Fighter Gets New Day, Time For 2013

The Ultimate Fighter 17 will debut January 22 on FX, as the series shifts from Friday to Tuesday evenings.

The news has been confirmed by MMAWeekly.com with a FX official.

The series will also move up an hour, airing at 9 p.m. ET. This season – the 17th and third on FX – features UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as coaches.

TUF will serve as the lead-in program for the FX hit Justified, and Sons of Anarchy in the fall when that program returns.

Several days had been rumored, specifically Thursday to compete with Bellator on Spike TV.
