While speaking to the media [via MMA Junkie] after the season finale of DWTNCS, UFC President Dana White mentioned that The Ultimate Fighter will continue on ESPN.
“‘The Ultimate Fighter’ will continue. There’s still a huge market for ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ still does well. People will look at the ratings, and they’ll come in at a half-million, 600 (thousand), 650m but that’s the initial rating. Now with DVR and stuff like that the numbers are much bigger. Last season’s ‘Ultimate Fighter’  averaged about a million viewers. That’s a lot of people. It’s still a big show and a big brand. Yeah, it’ll go on.”
“Yup. We can do it with ESPN, ESPN+.”
