Ever wanted a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu version of The Ultimate Fighter? Well, you are in luck because it is coming next month.
The Ultimate Fighter launched the careers of many UFC legends and champions such as Forrest Griffin, Diego Sanchez, and current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. The first season is what saved the UFC and why we are all watching the sport today.
FloGrappling is launching their own reality show, “Who’s Next,” in May. According to FloGrappling, the show was filmed in Texas and will feature 16 BJJ participants competing for $10,000 and a Who’s Number One contract. Who’s Number One or (WNO) held its inaugural event in February 2020 to huge success. WNO is now one of the leading shows in jiu-jitsu. There were WNO championships this past September, and the champion of each division received $30,000 and the title of WNO Champion.
Who’s Next will feature two coaches just like The Ultimate Fighter. The two coaches are ADCC silver medalist Craig Jones and WNO Championship heavyweight winner Tim Spriggs.
According to FloGrappling, The Who’s Next cast includes Adam Bradley, Kyle Chambers, Josh Demas, Spencer Fossier, Jansen Gomes, Breylor Grout, Max Hansen, Izaak Michell, Dan Manasoiu, Tristan Overvig, Mike Rakshan, Fabian Ramirez, Jay Rodriguez, Rene Sousa, Andrew Tackett, and Andy Varela.
Who’s Next premieres May 18 on FloGrappling.
