Justin Buchholz, the head coach of Team Alpha Male, says the next season of The Ultimate Fighter is the best season compared to all previous 24 seasons.
Former teammates, UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt and former champion TJ Dillashaw, will coach against each other this season.
“Everything you can expect from this season, it is that and more,” Buchholz said Tuesday on the Stud Radio show.
“Dana White always says, ‘This is going to be the best season of TUF ever. This is crazy. These guys hate each other.’ Like this season, no one compares to this.
“You have a situation where Cody Garbrandt and TJ are standing next to each other. It’s a bad situation. They’ve tried to make this happen a couple times and the results are… It’s only week two and you have all the history of the team and TJ. You have me, Danny, Urijah Faber, and you have all this history between all them and us. We were telling our guys, ‘You guys are just here to fight, and you got stuck in the middle of this huge drama. Number one big drama show this season. Teen Mom ain’t got nothing on this.”
Buchholz revealed that they are currently filming the second week of the season and have four more weeks to go.
After the show airs on television, Garbrandt is expected to defend his title for the first time against Dillashaw.
