The Ultimate Fighter is a reality TV show where 16 contestants live together and battle each other for a pair of Ultimate Fighting Championship contracts. The UFC is divided into five weight classes, Heavyweights, Light Heavyweights, Middleweights, Welterweights and Lightweights. In the first season of The Ultimate Fighter, there are 8 Light Heavyweights and 8 Middleweights, with four of each trained by two legendary UFC competitors Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell.

The Ultimate Fighter is a reality TV show where 16 contestants live together and battle each other in MMA fights.
As a reality show, it had some moments in the house. As a competition show, the fights rock. As for its influence, it changed the world of fighting.
Before the show, boxing was still on top. MMA was just a fringe sport. It had the feel of an illegal dog fight. What this show did was to demystified the world of MMA. It show these fighter as athletes rather than maniacs. It opened this world to the general public allowing more people to join.
