“TUF 17” will change from Friday time slot

The next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” will not be the third installment of “The Ultimate Fighter Fridays.”

Instead, the show will transfer to a different day.

FX executive Chuck Saftler announced the news on Wednesday during a conference call.

He did not, however, say which day the show would air on.

“The Ultimate Fighter 17” features a head coaching match up that is easily comparable to Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will match up his team against the team of Chael Sonnen.

The two will fight at the UFC’s April pay-per-view event.
