The Ultimate Fighter Is Going International

The popular reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” will go international this year, likely to the Philippines.

“The Ultimate Fighter is going to start airing in every country. We’re going to start doing The Ultimate Fighter U.K., The Ultimate Fighter Canada, The Ultimate Fighter Philippines. We’re doing it everywhere,” said UFC president Dana White on Tuesday.

The plans to take “The Ultimate Fighter” outside of the U.S. will begin “this year.”

“I’m pretty sure the first one is probably going to be the Philippines,” said White on a UFC 127 media conference call.

The series debuted on Spike TV on Jan. 17, 2005. The thirteenth season is currently being filmed in Las Vegas with coaches Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos and begins airing on March 30.
