Kim Winslow, love her or hate her, as been assigned as a referee for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.

It is always satisfying to reach a goal you set for yourself. I have wanted to ref for The Ultimate Fighter during the season. I have worked Tuf finales since 2009 but never during the series. I of course will not be discussing anything that occurs but I have been asked to work and am honored to do so. This season is going to be extraordinary already and getting to be part of that is extremely exciting, humbling, crazy, okay just flat out awesome!!!

Winslow confirmed the news on Facebook recently. The season will include female coaches – Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano – and female fighters.

It is scheduled to air in September on FOX Sports 1.
