The upcoming 12th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality-competition series today begins production in Las Vegas in anticipation of its Sept. 15 debut on Spike TV.

Officials today announced the start of the show's taping.

Additionally, they confirmed that – as with the current 11th season of the show – the lightweights-only season of the show features 28 fighters for the 32-man tournament.

Touted as a surprise format change with "TUF 11," the field of 28 assures that two eliminated cast members get a second opportunity to reenter the tourney as "wild card" picks.

Kyacey Uscola and Kris McCray, who made the "TUF 11" cast after winning their elimination-round bouts, ultimately lost in the first round (16 slots) of the tourney. However, they got a second life as this season's wild-card picks. McCray won the wild-card fight, upset Kyle Noke in the quarterfinals, and now meets Josh Bryant in the semis.

I don't like the wild card format
Bryant and mccrary don't deserve to make it to the finals
Might be as bad as tommy speers or brad imes making it
Whoever wins is gotta be a huge underdog in the finals

Why doesn't Bryant deserve to be in the finals?
