Following what could be deemed as one of the most monumental seasons in "The Ultimate Fighter" history, featuring Conor McGregor's second stint as a coach, the renowned MMA reality show is set to make its comeback with Season 32 in June.

"The Ultimate Fighter" played a pivotal role in propelling the UFC into the mainstream during the early 2000s, casting a spotlight on iconic fighters like Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, and Ken Shamrock. These legends mentored aspiring MMA fighters in a season-long competition, with contestants cohabiting in a shared house for several weeks.

Across its 31 seasons, the show has showcased a plethora of UFC champions, including Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans, Michael Bisping, Kamaru Usman, Robert Whittaker, TJ Dillashaw, and Rose Namajunas. It has also featured notable stars like Nate Diaz, Tony Ferguson, and Diego Sanchez. Each season, tension escalates between the coaches, culminating in a highly anticipated showdown of their own, offering fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the drama.

Season 32 of "The Ultimate Fighter" presents a coaching duel between women's flyweight champion Alexa Grasso and former champion Valentina Shevchenko. The two are slated to collide in a trilogy bout for Grasso's title following the season's conclusion. Grasso secured the title in their initial encounter via submission, while their second bout ended in a split draw.

This season's TUF competition, will feature contestants in the featherweight and middleweight divisions.
