The Ultimate Foto: Season 11

Well, season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter is underway on Spike and it looks like this season will be full of action, surprises and great fights.

Topps was once again at the UFC Training Facility for the start of the season for our latest photo shoot with the new competitors and coaches. Everyone seemed to enjoy the process of making what are essentially the 14 fighters’ rookie cards.

Below are scans of the autographed cards for the first 2 fighters to match up, Clayton McKinney and Kyle Noke.

These cards will be showing up in packs in a future Topps UFC release.
