32 Participants Revealed for Upcoming Ultimate Fighter Season

Spike TV's final season of The Ultimate Fighter will begin with a two-hour episode on September 21 featuring 16 fights, and on Monday Spike announced the names of the 32 fighters who will attempt to fight their way into the house. Here are the highlights:

-- Among the more recognizable names in the group are John Dodson, a bantamweight who trains with Greg Jackson, Matt Jaggers, a bantamweight who has fought in Bellator and Sengoku and has a 20-7 pro record, Bryan Caraway, a former WEC featherweight who trains with Team Alpha Male, Eric Marriott, a featherweight who has fought three times for Bellator, and Micah Miller, a featherweight who has fought in the WEC and Dream and is the brother of UFC fighter Cole Miller.

-- Brothers Josh Ferguson and B.J. Ferguson are both part of the bantamweight field, which means it's possible that the UFC could have its first-ever brother vs. brother fight.

-- The oldest fighter in the group is 31-year-old Marcus Brimmage. The youngest are 21-year-olds Jimmie Rivera and Casey Dyer.
