With the 12th season of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's reality show about to kick off, Bleacher Report thought it would be wise to keep a running commentary going to mark what could be a historically epic season for The Ultimate Fighter.

How wise a decision it was to hand the assignment to yours truly remains to be seen...

Regardless, this season has the potential to be one of the best ever.

Not only will we get a title fight between the coaches, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre and No. 1 contender Josh Koscheck, but there should be some serious fireworks.

That's nothing new—a good amount of controversy and scandal are staples of the reality genre.

However, those of us who were on board for Season 1 of TUF will remember that "Kos" was one of the show's original bad boys. He did his best to single-hosedly drive Chris Leben bonkers—granted, not a far drive, but still unnecessary.

The insurgent to the 170-pound throne has done a substantial bit of evolving and maturing since those days, but the self-destruction of Paul Daley should serve as a lasting reminder that the provocateur is still alive and well.

In other words, there should be some good friction between the coaches. Not Quinton Jackson-Rashad Evans friction, but certainly a clash of personalities and styles.

And where the coaches go, their fighters tend to follow.

The action starts in 15 minutes.
