Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin to coach TUF 'Latin America 3' because gringos rule (duh)

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champions and hall-of-fame homies Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin will continue to keep themselves in the combat sports spotlight as coaches for season three of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America."

Sure, this is the Spanish-speaking series of the mixed martial arts (MMA) reality show, but why bother with Latin American coaches when you can exhume two aging legends for a quick paycheck?

I guess that's what translators are for.

"Team Liddell vs. Team Griffin" will begin filming late spring in Buenos Aires, Argentina, according to the official press release, with a culminating finale programmed for Nov. 5, 2016 inside Mexico City's Arena Mexico.

Unlike most versions of TUF, Liddell and Griffin -- who are no strangers to reality television -- will not compete at the conclusion of the show because they are old and nobody wants to see that.

How to watch?

TUF: "Latin America 3" airs this August on UFC Network, Televisa's Channel 5 in Mexico, UFC Fight Pass and additional Free-to-Air Networks (14 in total) in Latin America.
