Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White over the weekend officially announced that Forrest Griffin and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson would serve as coaches for the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show.
The series begins filming in January and will air in April 2008 on Spike TV.
Following the regular season, Griffin and Jackson will fight for Jackson’s light heavyweight championship.
White made the Griffin announcement at the end of season finale for season six of The Ultimate Fighter. He also indicated that there would be major changes as the series marks its seventh season, saying, “We’re going to completely revamp and change the show.” Both White and Spike TV executives are being extremely secretive about the changes.
The Jackson announcement came during Sunday night’s airing of the 2007 Video Game Awards on Spike TV.
