UFC continued to counter STRIKEFORCE'S 8-MAN HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT by announcing Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos would be the rival coaches for The Ultimate Fighter's Season Number 13, which is scheduled to begin shooting in two weeks in Las Vegas. The season premier will March 30th on SpikeTV.
Brock and Dos Santos will spend 13 weeks training aspiring UFC welterweights, and then fight for the number one contender's position in the Heavyweight Division as the main event of a pay per view in June.
The winner of Brock vs Dos Santos will go on to fight Cain Velasquez for the Undisputed UFC Heavyweight Championship of the World later in the year when Velasquez returns from SHOULDER SURGERY TO REPAIR A TORN ROTATOR CUFF.
There will be no Interim Champion crowned. Brock Lesnar vs Junior Dos Santos will determine the next big Heavyweight Title Fight in UFC.
"(Brock vs Dos Santos) will 100% happen on the June pay per view," Dana White exclaimed, "Who knows what the numbers could be this season? (The Ultimate Fighter) is the best night of television."
The head honcho of the world's most powerful mixed martial arts organization added, "I think this show is just going to grow and grow and grow forever … This is going to be an interesting season in many ways. Brock is not exactly a happy-go-lucky guy."
