The end of the fourteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter is just 72 hours in the past and the Ultimate Fighting Championship is already announcing the coaches for the first season on FX. Bantamweights Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz will be the opposing coaches. The fifteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter will have some major changes with every fight being aired live on Friday nights. The season will determine the Ultimate Fighter at lightweight and welterweight.

Among the other confirmed changes are the thirteen week long season which will be the longest that contestants have been asked to stay in the "TUF house" in series history and fights decided by fan voting. The series will debut on March 9, 2012 with a two hour long episode at 9:00 PM ET/PT. After the first week the show will get moved to 10:00 PM ET/PT for the following 13 weeks.

Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz will put an end to their rivalry after the season ends midway through the year. Faber won the first fight with a quick guillotine choke. Cruz defended his bantamweight belt against Faber earlier this year. The fight this year is in the discussion for Fight of the Year.

It makes no sense to me why you didnt let these guys coach the past season but now let them coach the welterweights

Wouldn't it of made more sense for Bisping, miller or whatever middleweights to coach the new season of welterweights???

No, its much more fun to have them coach heavyweights so that everytime you see faber all you see is the heavyweights chests and their heads are cut out of the frame.

I don't know if I'll bother watching, to be honest. I like at least one of the guys to constantly run his yap. Even though it's annoying, it's entertaining.

What weight classes are they showcasing?

I bet Urijah comes off as the best TUF coach ever.
