The UFC messed up. 

In a recent promotional video for Season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter, a major spoiler slipped past the eyes of editors and aired to the masses. 

Watch the video embedded above. 

Did you catch it? 

As Ohio MMA pointed out on Twitter, at :21, a full list of the cast members who make the house appears onscreen, including team designations. 

If you can't pause the video in time, here is a screenshot I captured from the video including all eight fighters for each team (Ohio MMA missed two fighters in their screenshot). 

That certainly takes some steam away from the premiere episode, no? 

If you want to score some quick cash from your buddies, however, you could start lining up bets (just sayin'). 

As my colleague Riley Kontek pointed out to me over online chat, this slip-up may be intentional. 

With all the buzz currently surrounding Season 20 of The Ultimate Fighterperhaps the UFC executives did something drastic to get us talking about Season 19 again.

Regardless of why it happened, it happened.
A big announcement was made public—intentionally or not—and fans received a taste of what Season 19 has in store for us almost five months before it airs.
What do you make of this? Did the UFC reveal the cast list on purpose, or did they slip up after 18 seasons of keeping secrets?
