Dana White told MMAFighting.com on Thursday that the show will premiere on Discovery Channel in 2014 “for sure,” however, no specific date has been set in stone.
“He declined to disclose the format of the show and how many episodes will air in a season. It will, however, only feature boxing, White said.
“The Fighters” represents a return to White’s boxing roots. The teaser clip, which he tweeted Thursday afternoon, suggests the show will take place in South Boston, which is where White used to live and also manage a boxing gym. It also features a long-time friend and former business partner of White’s, trainer Peter Welch.”
