The Ultimate Fighter season 19 won’t debut on FOX Sports 1 until 2014 with coaches BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar at the helm, but when it happens expect something dramatic during the early fights to get into the house.
The elimination bouts are held between all of the fighters hoping to make their entry into The Ultimate Fighter house, and UFC president Dana White was on hand on Wednesday to see the action unfold.
While he obviously couldn’t say how it happened or who it happened to, White teases that there is a knockout coming this season that will be the nastiest in Ultimate Fighter history.
White was so blown away by the knockout that he says it even trumps Uriah Hall’s spinning back kick shellacking of Adam Cella during The Ultimate Fighter 18.
"We had the fights to get into the house yesterday on The Ultimate Fighter, probably the nastiest f-king knockout. It beats Uriah Hall knockout," White said. "Was Uriah Hall not one of the sickest knockouts you’ve ever seen? This one beats it. Picture how f-king scary this knockout is."
Season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter will be filled by a cast of middleweights and light heavyweights, and they will be led by former lightweight and welterweight champion BJ Penn and former 155-pound king Frankie Edgar.
The season just started taping this week and will debut on FOX Sports 1 in early 2014.
