UFC boss promises all 14 cast members of 'TUF 17' an official UFC fight

LAS VEGAS – According to UFC President Dana White, all 14 fighters competing on "The Ultimate Fighter 17" will get at least one official UFC appearance.

White said he was so happy with the efforts of the entire cast that he has promised each of them one more shot at earning a spot on the UFC roster.

"This season is so f---ing good, and I was so happy with all the guys, I told them, 'Every one of you guys are going to fight. You're going to get one more chance in the UFC. Every guy here is going to get another chance in the UFC,'" White said at a Thursday media session promoting this weekend's UFC 156 event.

"The Ultimate Fighter 17" is currently airing Tuesday nights on FX. Two episodes have aired to date, and the show has generally been well received by MMA fans for a revised feel to the show, as well as one of the stronger casts in recent memory.

White's revelation is a staunch departure from his recent handling of the cast from "The Ultimate Fighter 16," which was widely panned for its dull fights and resulted in just four fighters (including the season's two tournament finalists) earning an official UFC appearance following the exhibition matches from the reality competition series.

While the UFC boss' revelation was surely fantastic news for the 12 "TUF 17" contestants who did not qualify for the final bout – which takes place on April 13 at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale – White said his matchmaker wasn't exactly thrilled with the challenge of adding 14 new fighters to a roster already bloated by the recent shuttering of UFC sister promotion Strikeforce.

Of course, that didn't do anything to change the UFC boss' mind.

"Joe Silva wants to f---ing kill me," White joked. "'It's impossible! It mathematically doesn't work.' I told him, 'Mathematically make it work.'

"So all those guys will get a shot to get into the UFC again. Even if we have to add one more fight on each card – however we have to do it, we're going to get these guys a shot."

"The Ultimate Fighter 17" started with 28 fighters vying for the title of "the next Ultimate Fighter" and a six-figure UFC contract. Fourteen fighters were eliminated in preliminary matches, leaving 14 official cast members for the show. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and outspoken veteran Chael Sonnen serve as opposing coaches on the latest edition of the long-running series.

TUF 16 should never be mentioned again, just locked away in a vault forever.

TUF 16 was terrible. Even worse than the season with Kimbo.

No kidding we got the two guys that should be in the ufc in the UFC. From now on the rest is only let me bang bro.

Also the season with kimbo produced three quality fighters. Which is far more than most seasons.

The heavyweight season wasn't too bad some decent guys came off of it in Roy. Schaub and Methead.

Season 16? Must have missed it.... whoops. NOT! Seriously i use to ALWAYS watch TUF but last season i lost interest in even fast fowarding threw the BS to just the fights.. Brazil season was horrid IMO too but thats partly because i could only watch it on FUEL and fuel doesnt have an HD channel so SCREW watching an entire season on it. TUF live was alright though but that's majorly because BW/FEW/FLW were all new to the UFC so there were plently of talented unacquired fighters.

That's got me excited for this season. Give Josh Samman a shot against Anderson Silva just so I can see the spider put his foot through Josh's face and shut him up

I was actually quite proud of myself as I made through 10 episodes of TUF 16 before tuning out. That was just terrible. If I ever see that goose with the red Mohawk again it will be too soon.
