This season's The Ultimate Fighter was unlike any other before. The contestants were all flyweight champions from various promotions around the globe, hoping for the chance at an immediate title shot against UFC flyweight champion and the number one ranked pound for pound fighter, Demetrius "Mighty Mouse" Johnson.

Johnson's opponent has his work cut out for him as he will be facing the man who owns practically every significant record in the division’s short history and currently holds the longest active streak of title defenses by any champion in the UFC (8). It will take a lot for a UFC newcomer to unseat the flyweight king.

But, it could happen, and that's why you should be watching.

This is MMA - where the impossible happens. Fresh in our minds is the stunning loss of Ronda Rousey, whom many thought was unbeatable, or the moment we saw the middleweight title reign of Luke Rockhold end to Mike Bisping. We are still talking about when Nate Diaz forced Conor McGregor to tap.

This. Could. Happen.


We don't want anyone to miss this potentially historic fight so we've laid out all the info you need to know about where and when to watch this fight below.
