TUF 6 the ultimate fighter
Season six of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) will begin taping for six weeks this spring in Las Vegas, Nevada, and premier in the fall, according to

Over the weekend, we passed along the official announcement at UFC 70 that current 170-pound champion Matt Serra and former titleholder Matt Hughes will be the coaches for the latest edition of the reality series.

Furthermore, the two will fight one another later this year on a pay-per-view (PPV) card that has yet to be announced.

Here's a snip from UFC President Dana White:

"We're raising the stakes for season six of The Ultimate Fighter. Matt Serra, UFC Welterweight Champion, and Matt Hughes, the former welterweight champion, do not like each other at all. It should be a wild ride."

There are quotes from Serra and Hughes in the release. And, surprisingly, Serra doesn't call Hughes a "dick" this time around. But, he still takes a shot at the Illinois native.

Check it out when you have some time.

TUF 6 will feature 16 welterweights who will battle for one lucrative UFC contract.
