As promised, the UFC has brought The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 back to television in the U.K.

Marshall Zelaznik brings word (via ESPN) that this season, which is already underway, will air on ESPN starting on April 7. They will air the first two episodes back-to-back with the rest of the series being shown every Thursday night at 10 p.m.

TUF 13 features heavy-hitting heavyweights Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos as opposing coaches leading their respective teams of welterweight hopefuls, fighting it out for the glass plaque and that coveted six-figure contract with the world's largest fight promotion. 

Lesnar and dos Santos will meet at the conclusion of the season at UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to determine the number one contender to Cain Velasquez's heavyweight title.
