The UFC have announced a new ‘Nations’ edition of The Ultimate Fighter with Canada set to lock horns with Australia.
Patrick Cote will coach the Canadian team, while Kyle Noke will coach for the Aussies when it begins filming in the fall. The two men should be well accustomed to the format as they were both previous participants in the TUF show themselves in years gone by.
Cote is a long-time UFC veteran who made it to the final of TUF season 4 and later fought Anderson Silva for the middleweight title, though his overall record inside the Octagon is an unflattering 6-8.
Noke emerged via TUF 11 and has so far compiled a 4-2 record in the UFC including a TKO victory over Charlie Brenneman last time out.
The show will be broadcast sometime next year on Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada, while TV plans for the rest of the world have yet to be announced.
