The newest cast list for “The Ultimate Fighter” has been revealed with heavyweights and women’s featherweights making up the roster for the latest season.

Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and former “Ultimate Fighter” winner Kelvin Gastelum will serve as coaches for the season before squaring off with the title on the line later this year.

The women’s featherweight division will make its first appearance on the show after the weigh class was first introduced into the UFC last year.

The cast list for the women’s featherweight division includes:

Leah Letson | 25 | 4-1 | Milwaukee, WI

Larissa Pacheco | 23 | 11-2 | Belem, Brazil

Marciea Allen | 36 | 7-2 | Wood Dale, IL

Pannie Kianzad | 26 | 9-3 | Copenhagen, Denmark

Bea Malecki | 26 | 2-0 | Stockholm, Sweden

Julija Stoliarenko | 25 | 4-2-1 | Kaunas, Lithuania

Katharina Lehner | 28 | 7-1 | Cologne, Germany

Macy Chiasson | 26 | 2-0 | New Orleans, LA

There’s definitely a lot of international talent on the show from the women’s featherweigh division this season. Meanwhile, the heavyweights will also take part in the show this season with eight prospects looking to earn a spot on the UFC roster.

The heavyweights competing on the reality show this season will include:

Ben Sosoli | 28 | 6-2 | Melbourne, Australia

Maurice Greene | 31 | 5-2 | St. Cloud, MN

Michel Batista | 34 | 4-0 | Miami, FL

Juan Francisco Espino Diepa | 37 | 8-1 | Las Palmas, Spain

Justin Frazier | 28 | 10-2 | Cave City, AR

Anderson Da Silva | 31 | 3-0-1 | Sao Paulo, Brazil

Przemyslaw Mysiala | 35 | 22-9-1 | Maidenhead, England

Josh Parisian | 28 | 7-2 | Brighton, MI

If Parisian’s name sounds familiar that’s because he earned his spot on the show after winning a fight on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series two weeks ago with a slot on “The Ultimate Fighter” as his reward.

“The Ultimate Fighter: Heavy Hitters” will debut on FS1 on Wednesday night, Aug. 29 with the live finale then scheduled for Nov. 30 in Las Vegas.
