Amir will compete with 28 other lightweight fighters, and 14 of them will be cut right away by an elimination-round of fights. Then two of them will get a second chance later in the show.

Michiganders from the southwest side of the state probably know Amir as the promoter of the Rumble in the Zoo shows, and the instructor of Lightning Kicks gym and fight team. What you might not know is that Mr. Khillah is a member of Jeremy Horn’s Elite and has been training with Matt Hughes – even training with Hughes before his battle with Renzo Gracie at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi.

The winner of TUF12 will walk away with a six figure contract with the UFC. We’re wholesale nfl jerseys ready to watch one of Michigan’s finest walk away with that contract to fight in the UFC octagon.

The coaches for this season are UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck. Don’t miss the season premiere on September 15th – Only on Spike TV.
