White: Every TUF 17 fighter gets a UFC fight
According to UFC president Dana White, this season’s TUF fights are so good and so competitive, he couldn’t bring himself to cut a single competitor. Not one. When the season finishes airing on FX, each man will get at least one more chance to compete in the UFC.
“This season is so f—— good, and I was so happy with the guys, I told them, every one of you guys are going to fight. You’re going to get one more chance in the UFC,” White said. “Every guy here is going to get one more chance in the UFC. Joe Silva wants to f—— kill me. ‘It’s impossible. It mathematically doesn’t work.’ I said, ‘Mathematically make it work.'”
White said whatever the UFC would have to do to make it happen, they would do, including adding one extra fight on each card until each contestant gets his opportunity.
