Two New Fighters Enter the Fold

The Ultimate Fighter finished a long and beneficial relationship with Spike TV with the TUF 14 Finale. For 14 seasons ago Spike TV and the UFC got together to make The Ultimate Fighter, a reality show where fighters got the chance to fight themselves into a UFC contract. This relationship was one of the best for both institutions as the UFC became the fastest growing sports in the world and Spike became a successful network.

What 2 Watch (Dec. 2-4)

With Canadian Football done for the year the first weekend in December will feature fewer games but still some great events. The NCAA will take over this weekend with Championship Weekend seeing a number of great championship games just before the main bowls are decided. Meanwhile the NFL continues in their last few weeks with a game that could provide a big upset in the league.

This fight between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar was so good that it may have been the turning point in the UFC.
