Season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) featuring "Team Lesnar vs. Team Dos Santos" is set to go down tomorrow night (Wednesday, March 30, 2011) at its new time of 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV.

As usual, MMAmania.com will provide a weekly recap and post-fight discussion thread following every episode of TUF 13 at the conclusion of each broadcast.

Leading a group of 14 welterweight hopefuls will be UFC heavyweight contenders Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos, who will not only oppose one another as coaches on the Spike TV reality show, but will also square off at UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver to see who gets the next crack at division champion Cain Velasquez.

The promotion has done away with the "elimination round" for this season, which means the fighters you see on episode one have already earned a spot in the TUF house.

In addition to the weekly telecast, Spike.com will offer behind-the-scenes clips, outtakes and interviews with eliminated fighters with TUF 13 "Aftermath" webisodes.

To get up to speed on everything "Team Lesnar vs. Team Dos Santos," follow me after the jump for a cast roster, list of coaches, video sneak peeks and a whole lot more.
