Lesnar Dos Santos TUF 13

“The Ultimate Fighter 13″ will pit Brock Lesnar’s hideous Celtic-Green team against Junior dos Santos’ Silver squad. This season will feature a 14-man welterweight tournament, with the winner claiming a six-figure UFC contract with the world’s biggest mixed martial arts promotion.

The new season premieres Wednesday, March 30th on Spike TV at 9PM ET/PT.

During the ten episode run of the show, the competitors endure a grueling regimen of jiu jitsu, judo, Muay Thai, karate, boxing and wrestling. As expected, the intense competition among the roomies continues after they leave the gym – at the infamous TUF House.

The two finalists will square off at “The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale” on June 4th.
