It’s hard to keep the fires going for a television series that’s spanned an 11-year run, but the UFC is stoking the flames of the Ultimate Fighter in a number of creative ways – not the least of which is their efforts to bring the franchise global. Which brings us to the upcoming season being filmed in Australia and dubbed TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia.
UFC vets Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke have top honors as coaches, but in terms of other recognizable names on the cast, maybe – MAYBE – you’ll know Nordine Taleb from his brief stint in Bellator. Other than that, hooray for another TUF installment that will air on FOX Sports 1 on tape delay and won’t get watched! (In the UFC’s defense, these aren’t meant for our consumption here the States as much as they are for the local Australian market.) Anyway, here’s a preview.
