Two UFC Hall-of-Famers are making their return to the Octagon, mentoring a new generation of MMA fighters.

Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin will serve as head coaches for Season 3 of The Ultimate Fighter Latin America, which will begin filming in Buenos Aires, Argentina later this year.

The finale is scheduled to take place on November 5 in Mexico City, and as always, will feature the finalists from the show battling it out for a UFC contract.

"We have come a long way from the first season of The Ultimate Fighter," Chuck Liddell said in a statement. "I feel honored to be a part of the Latin American series. We have great fighters competing in the region and I’m excited to get a chance to train them and teach them a few things I learned during my career. Expect a great finale in Mexico City November 5."

"I’m very excited to be participating in The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3,” Forrest Griffin added. "I know how much of a competitor Chuck is so I will be bringing my A game. UFC is still very new in Latin America and for that reason I am thrilled to be a part of this opportunity in helping grow the sport in the region."

To date, more than 100 fighters have found their way into the UFC through TUF, including champions like Rashad Evans and TJ Dillashaw.

This season of The Ultimate Fighter Latin America will air on UFC Network and UFC Fight Pass.
