By FCF Staff

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has revealed the entire cast for it’s the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter Nations”, which will feature teams from Canada and Australia. Team Canada will be coached by Patrick Cote and Team Australia will be guided by Kyle Noke, and the two will fight after the season concludes.

“If guys thought fighting in the toughest tournament on television was hard, imagine how they feel doing it with a whole country on their shoulders,” UFC President Dana White was quoted saying in the official announcement. “These country vs. country seasons of The Ultimate Fighter are awesome because not only do these guys deal with living in a house with other fighters, training twice a day and putting everything on the line for their dream opportunity, but now it’s even more personal – it’s patriotic.”

“Next season, we lined up one of the deepest talent pools with some of the toughest up and coming fighters and put national bragging rights on the line along with the UFC contract, as Canada and Australia go head-to-head to kick off 2014.”

TUF Nations will debut January 15th and will be carried by FOX Sports 1 in the United States. Here is the cast for the upcoming show.
