Are you ready for another season of The Ultimate Fighter? I know you are, especially because this season is a little bit different than the others. Sixteen flyweight competitors, all of whom are champions across regional promotions that span the globe, are vying to win the show’s tournament and earn a title shot against the P4P best in the world, Demtrious Johnson.

Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo are your coaches for TUF 24, with the two former title challengers (alternatively: great fighters who have lost to Demetrious Johnson) squaring off in the December 10th co-main event. Mighty Mouse vs. TUF 24 winner will serve as the main event.

This is your place to hang out and discuss tonight’s first episode of the new season. It premieres on Fox Sports 1 at 10 PM ET. The first episode is two hours so there will be plenty to watch.

Note: We are aware of the winner of this competition having potentially been spoiled by an MMA journalist on Tuesday. That tweet has since been deleted, but please don’t give the result in the comments section.

Here’s the list of cast members and the promotions they represent.
