Rampage Jackson v. Forrest Griffin

Light heavyweight champ Rampage Jackson (29-6, 3-0 UFC) and TUF 1 star Forrest Griffin (15-4, 6-2 UFC) will apparently serve as coaches for The Ultimate Fighter season 7. The show debuts April 2nd immediately following Ultimate Fight Night 13. As UFN 13 will run 3 hours, there will be 4 hours of UFC action. After the show wraps, they will probably fight for the light heavyweight title at UFC 86.

There are also many changes in the show that have been planned for the seventh season. One is that there will be 32 fighters starting out. They have to win on the first day to stay in the house.
