The Ultimate Fighter Season 7: Show Changes and Fighter Rumors

the ultimate fighter season 7 TUF rumors and news

With The Ultimate Fighter 7 rumors filling the web pages, we get word that the show is starting things off a little different this season. First off, the show will start with 32 contestants instead of 16 like previous seasons. The show will have the 32 fighter fight to make the final 16 cut that will be invited to stay in the house.

Here’s the latest from the Junkie:

According to a source close to the show, “The Ultimate Fighter 7” will start with 32 cast members – not the usual 16 – and every one of them will have to fight as soon as the show begins. The 16 winners earn a spot in the house, and the 16 losers are sent packing for home.

Those fights will likely be televised at a breakneck speed, meaning the season’s first couple episodes should include 16 fights in total. That’s a far cry from past seasons of the reality series, when the first fight of the season sometimes didn’t take place until a second or even third episode.

  1. wow, CB calloway is part of this?

  2. I notice that they don't get any fighters form Miletich or Team Jackson anymore.

  3. I like the idea of more fights.

  4. helll yeah that is whats up this sounds like a badass season i cant wait to see it

  5. any truth to Pat Schultz out of Mass being involved?

  6. Theres a buzz around Mass about Pat Schultz making it to vegas for the cut any truth to this rumor?

  7. dane drebin says:

    i think thats a brilliant idea to make them all fight right off the bat so people who look tough and arent really tough dotn make it on to the show its a great idea

  8. Pat went on vacation last week I am sure that is why the rumor started but he was at his school teaching tuesday

  9. go dante go


  11. mmajunkier says:

    Wow! MAtt Brown is vying for a spot? That's awesome being Bobby Brown brother that's gotta be awesome! Maybe he can use "Too Legit to quit!" as entrance music! Hey! hey!

  12. I like this format better than watching them workout. More fights the better.

  13. Smitty74 …how would you know? what do you do at the school? clean the bathrooms?

  14. SchultzFan says:

    I heard Smitty74 handles the linens, underwear, jocks, ball sweat towels.

  15. on regards to pat schultz…the vacation story may very well be a cover….be looking for those frosted tips on april 2nd

  16. Hey, schultzfan….I have never handled the linens

  17. Shultz is on it… i train at his gym…he got choked out in his first fight

  18. Bob, Has Smitty 74 ever handled your linens?

  19. Sorry, I told a blatant lie, Smitty doesn't handle the sweaty ball linens, just the sweaty balls.

  20. Bob? is that true?

  21. ^^I doubt it


  23. you lie

  24. hey guys when does it air on spike thanks

  25. I just wiki'd it and it says the premiere is going to be April 2nd.

  26. that was the date of my barmitzvah haha…okay completely random and stupid but dont worry about that…I think it's smart that theyy are shaking things up on the show and changing the way it goes, only thing I dont like is that Jackson and Griffin wont fight for a pretty long time because of it

  27. ^^^ I think they are fighting in July

  28. BDF in Bourne says:

    Schultzy is the real deal.. Trot52 &Smitty74 are spooning during the day..

  29. BDF wears Mass Destruction T-Shirts to little league so the other parents think he's tough

  30. BDF in Bourne says:

    That's cuz BDF's boy hasn't gotten him the new one yet.. Still waiting…

  31. BDF and Smitty74 = MMA Noobs

  32. BDF in Bourne says:

    What's a noob? Is it like a Knob but different?

  33. SchultzFan says:

    Can't wait for the new show to start……Ultimate Fighter 7….SPIKE TV April…..Hey, who handle's Mr. Patrick's sweaty family heirlooms?? Trot or Smitty?? Or maybe both???

  34. trotty and smitty are about as cool as a fart in a spacesuit

  35. listen dante rivera is sick and everyone watch him because he going all the way

  36. getting rid of Bradley was a misstake! herpes II is no different that anyother disease out there the dr. didn't explain the whole stipulation of it!

  37. Does anyone know how long the guys stay in the house? How long does it take to film the whole season?

  38. Sounds like someone has herpes II. Does anyone know the scoop on the fighter getting kicked off the show. I just saw the preview for the last episode, and apparently someone makes to the gig, but busts a window out of a limo (or something?) and gets kicked out of the UFC forever. Any info would be good!

  39. I think they stay in the house for 6 weeks. I dont know who gets kicked out but I want to find out.

  40. what the heck is going on…who is getting kicked off and why? All they show is two limos pulling up towards each other and then you see Dana saying ??? is done!

    Anyone know???

  41. XtraTrstrL says:

    It's gotta be out of Jesse Taylor, CB Dollaway and Amir.

    Jesse Taylor seems like the type to do something crazy like that, if it's out of CB or Amir, it may be CB though. That'd suck, cuz the 3 of them are all really good.

    Jesse's got inhuman strength, cardio and ground 'n pound.

    Amir seems like a great all around, balls to the wall fighter.

    CB is just skilled and ridiculously vicious.

    Sucks for whoever it is.

  42. Keep in mind it says he's out of the finale, not the final, so it could be any fighter from the house due to fight on the undercard of the ultimate finale. I'm thinking jeremy may as he was due for a matt brown rematch but it looks like Brown is fighting somebody from another season now. Face it they have singled jeremy out as the a$$ of the house all season, what better way to end it all than by kicking him out. good riddance.

  43. Well if you watch the recording at the bottom of my post you will notice that when he said "I was shocked, the coaches were shocked…." you see Rampage looking pissed and Forest smiling.. so its gotta be CB. He probably loses and gets pissed and starts breaking $hit.. Or it could be somebody else off Rampage's team that was on the card.

  44. look nice first site -
