During an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast with special guest Joe Schilling, the longtime UFC color commentator shared that the upcoming season of the Ultimate Fighter would feature Paulo Costa and UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya as the coaches.
“Oh they’re bringing it back by the way, Paulo Costa and Israel Adesanya, tell me you’re not gonna watch that.”
The UFC hasn’t confirmed when this season will air or which platform – Fight Pass or ESPN+ it will air on.
Adesanya said recently in an interview with Submission Radio that he was not interested in coaching on The Ultimate Fighter (H/T to LowKickMMA):
“It’s definitely not something I’m interested in because put it this way when Robert and Kelvin did it Eugene does not watch The Ultimate Fighter, he doesn’t like the show but he watched it because it tells you allot about an individual and it gives allot away. And for me, I wouldn’t want to go there and decoy and give these guys that I’m trying to train some, not bullshit, I’d want to do my best, if I’m gonna do something I’d fucking do my best” Adesanya said.
