TUF 23 video sneak peek at strawweight, light heavyweight cast ahead of FOX Sports 1 debut

The upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23 will be coached by 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and No. 1 contender Claudia Gadelha, who lead a pool of strawweight and light heavyweight prospects. 32, to be exact, and they will fight for one of 16 open slots in the premiere episode on Weds., April 20, 2016 at 10 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.

TUF 23 will run for 12 episodes and conclude with a live finale on Fri., July 8, 2016 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, headlined by Jedrzejczyk vs. Gadelha, as part of International Fight Week. Elsewhere on the card, James Krause and Ross Pearson collide in lightweight action.

Assuming we can make it until then.

"Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha, on the last day of filming when everything shut down, got into a full-blown fist fight," UFC President Dana White said. "Head kicks, nasty fight in The Ultimate Fighter gym."

I think I'll be tuning in for this one.
