For the first time in the history of the competition, The Ultimate Fighter will crown a champion. 16 of the most talented female fighters in the world arrive to the UFC training center to compete in a tournament to decide who will be the first first belt holder in the UFC's new 115 pound straw-weight division. Some are veterans of the women's fight organization Invicta, others chosen from an open tryout. Coaches Gilbert Melendez and current lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis pick their squads, the women move into the house and begin training. Then, the teams face off in the first preliminary fight of the season.
