September 15, 2007

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the Ultimate Fighter should be very proud. Five new MMA related reality shows are in development:

1) UFC Lifestyles – the UFC’s version of cribs, reportedly part of the $100 million dollar contract in the works between Spike and the UFC.

2) Quinton Jackson – Rampage’s management is pitching a reality show following the colorful champ reportedly with interest from MTV, A&E, and Spike.

3) American Fighter – Rich Franklin hosted reality show focusing on people fighting back against the odds. Pilot episode features a man learning to walk again after an ATV accident.

4) Frank Shamrock’s School of Hard Knocks – Mark Burnett production, believed to be something similar to the Contender.

5) BET MMA Project – concept similar to IFL/TUF (team based) with celebrity “owners.”
