Friendly reminder for all you TUF guys and gals.

Filming started today in Las Vegas for what should be the most commercially successful installment of the show to date, as Brock Lesnar will coach against Junior dos Santos for season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter.

It may have taken the UFC up to the final hour to make it happen, but they somehow managed to persuade the pasty and reclusive Lesnar to appear on the popular Spike reality television show.

They also convinced "JDS" to put his number one contender spot for the heavyweight title on the line by accepting what could be a tough match-up. No date or venue for the contest has been named but an announcement is expected in the coming weeks.

Questions abound regarding the show, including what coaches each fighter will choose, how an entire season can work with a Brazilian that speaks extremely broken English and whether or not this entire thing is a scam (Roy Nelson's words, not mine).

The season is set to debut March 30 on Spike TV, so tune in to find out.
