TUF 21 will be American Top Team vs. The Blackzilians. Filming will be taking place in South Florida. You won't see one person with a hand picked staff this season, it's gonna be Team versus Team. The weight class for for the season will be welterweight.

The Ultimate Fighter Season 21 will have a new twist to the usual format. Instead of two fighter-coaches picking their teams from a group after they have earned their way into the house, the new format will pit existing fight camps against each other. First reported by Jay Pagliaro and MMA Fight Radio, we will see American Top Team vs. The Blackzilians in the upcoming season. Filming for this season will soon take place in South Florida. Competing in this season will be welterweight fighters from their respective camps.

Expect to see a lot of Ricardo Liborio and Henri Hooft as they are expected to take the place of the fighter-coach, which will give the world a better insight of the greatness of these two mixed martial arts coaches.



Ricardo Liborio is the head instructor and co-founder of American Top Team. Having won many national championships in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, he is heralded as one of the best BJJ black belts under Carlson Gracie. At American Top Team, he coaches some of the best fighters in the world such as current UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler, Hector Lombard, Tyron Woodley, Brad Pickett, and Jorge Masvidal.



Henri Hooft, a former kickboxer and world champion, is the head striking coach of The Blackzilians. He is widely viewed as one of mixed martial art’s most innovative striking coaches who currently trains an incredible lineup of UFC fighters such as Vitor Belfort, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, Rashad Evans, and Abel Trujillo to name just a few.

Eh, I don't know about this.
I'm a little worried that the talent level is gonna suffer due the camp restriction. With there being no tryouts or anything, we're really just left with whatever welterweights the coaches have at their disposal from their own gyms, which will obviously exclude the best WWs, because they're likely already in the UFC.
I could see this end up being a season where maybe 2 fighters end up having any sort of lasting career in the UFC.
