UFC UK president Marshall Zelaznik has announced that season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter will air on ESPN in the UK.

The series will start on April 7, with episodes 1 and 2 being shown back to back, and then every Thursday at 10pm, less than 24 hours after it airs in the United States.

The reality show features a host of up and coming MMA talent competing for a UFC contract.

Brock Lesnar & Junior Dos Santos have been named as coaches, and the two will meet to determine the No. 1 contender for the heavyweight championship this June at UFC 131 in Canada
