TUF Nations: Canada Vs. Australia Debuts Tonight On FS1

TUF Nations: Canada Vs. Australia Debuts Tonight On FS1

The next installment in The Ultimate Fighter will begin tonight on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET.

This season, entitled TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia, features welterweights and middleweights coached by Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke.

“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 said. “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.

“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.”
