The upcoming season will run for 13 consecutive weeks, airing Friday nights at 10PM ET/PT following the premiere. The tournament winner will be crowned at the live finale on December 15th on FX.

Heavyweights Roy Nelson (Pictured) and Shane Carwin will serve as this season’s opposing coaches. The 265-pounders will tutor 16 welterweights, with the tournament winner securing his future with a six-figure UFC contract.

Nelson and Carwin will collide in the finale.
