32-man field revealed for “TUF: Fridays”

The Ultimate Fighter Fridays” begins this fall on FX, and today the 32-fighter field was announced.

The season debuts on September 14 at 9 p.m. ET with a two-hour special.

Of the 32 men, 16 will fight their way into the house, where they will be a member of either Shane Carwin or Roy Nelson’s team.

“Carwin and Nelson are two guys who just can’t stand each other, and Roy and I haven’t exactly seen eye to eye either – he’s been a nightmare for me to work with on this show with all his stupid BS,” UFC president Dana White said.

The season leads up to a December 15 finale in Las Vegas. Carwin and Nelson will meet in the evening’s main event.

Now, without further ado, here is the list of the 32 fighters attempting to become the next “Ultimate Fighter” of the welterweight division:
