Spike TV is canceling "The Ultimate Fighter" after 14 seasons, having the series end this September on the network. However, the long-running reality TV show will move to FX while Fox will air four live UFC fights per year.
In a statement from Spike TV, the networks said: "The Ultimate Fighter" season 14 in September will be our last. We are increasing our commitment to distinctive, original series that we own such as "Auction Hunters" and "Bar Rescue" which are delivering on our goal to reach a broader audience. Our six-year partnership with the UFC has been incredibly beneficial in building both our brands, and we wish them all the best in the future."
