Brock Lesnar named Ultimate Fighter 13 Coach

After months of speculation and more than a dozen rumored names, UFC president Dana White today announced heavyweight contenders Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos will be coaches on the upcoming 13th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

“The Ultimate Fighter 13” debuts March 30 on Spike TV, and a live finale is slated for June 4. The coaches meet in a season-ending fight in June, possibly at UFC 131 in Toronto.
Lesnar (5-2) is a former titleholder who lost his belt to current champ Cain Velasquez in October. The former WWE star has emerged as the UFC’s top pay-per-view draw, and his inclusion in “TUF” should translate to big ratings.

Dos Santos (12-1), recently claimed top-contender status by posting a 6-0 record in the UFC. Recent wins have come over Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, Gilbert Yvel, Gabriel Gonzaga and Roy Nelson.
