"I'm very excited," White said. "I want to thank everybody over at FX for all the support they've given us since we've come to FOX. I'm very excited to be moving to FOX Sports 1. I think the crew that works over there and the plans they have for this network, it's going to be awesome, and we're very excited to be part of it."
Eric Shanks, an executive with FOX Sports, added, "Bringing The Ultimate Fighter to FOX Sports 1 is like adding a big bat to an exciting young lineup. TUF has jump-started the careers of dozens of fighters. It's going to be a welcomed addition to FOX Sports 1 and the perfect anchor for our Wednesday prime time UFC block."
