UFC President, also added that the wild card slot introduced in the last season will be back in the Season 12.

“We’re bringing back the wild card. The way the wild card works is after the guys fight their way into the house there’s seven preliminary fights. And for the eighth preliminary fight, we take two guys who have lost, but we feel have a ton of talent and could still make it in the competition and we bring them back as the wild card fighters. And the winner of that fight gets the last quarterfinal spot.”
