Canada will square off against Australia in the next international version of The Ultimate Fighter. The UFC announced the news via release on Friday.

Canadian UFC veteran Patrick Cote and Australian Kyle Noke will coach against each other in the reality show that will feature welterweights. The show is expected to debut in early 2014. The tryouts for the show will begin in September.

Cote has won two of his past three fights since he has returned to the UFC. He defeated Bobby Voelker via unanimous decision at UFC 158 on March 16.

Noke has won three of his past five fights, knocking out Charlie Brenneman via first-round TKO at UFC 152 in September of last year.

Cote and Noke are both alumni of previous seasons of The Ultimate Fighter.
