The Ultimate Fighter: Tournament of Champions, commonly known as TUF 24 is the latest installment of the Ultimate Fighting Championship reality television series The Ultimate Fighter.
On May 11, 2016 the UFC announced that the 16 competitors for the season would be flyweight fighters from various locations who are champions in their respective organizations around the world, with the winner earning the chance to fight for the UFC Flyweight Championship. The coaches for the season are former flyweight title challengers Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo.
The last episode of the season airs this Wednesday November 30th. So the mistery revolves around knowing who gets to fight the UFC flyweight champion Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson. The champion has 8 consecutive defenses and is currently the #1 pound for pound fighter in the world. The championship fight will be on December 3rd at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As we all know, UFC films the show months before it airs and the final episode appears on TV the week of the fight. There are non-disclosure agreements signed by every fighter to guarantee there are no threats to the show’s ratings. However, this time the information regarding the winner of the tournament of TUF 24 has been revealed and it wasn’t by any of the fighters.

Apparently whoever is running the TV listings of AT&T/Direct TV didn’t sign any agreements. The final fight of the season features number 3 seed Tim Elliot vs number 5 Hiromasa Ogikubo. But if you don’t have time to watch the final episode of the reality show this Wednesday, don’t worry about the result. Because as you can see in the photos, Tim Elliot is a strong favorite to win the fight.
