The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 on FOX Sports 1 is set for April 16, 2014. Check out the video teaser below!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back with its flagship show, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), as it returns for season 19 on April 16, 2014 via FOX Sports 1, pitting two coaches together who know each other all too well.

Frankie Edgar will be going up against BJ Penn in the coaching role, as both featherweights are set to lock horns for the third (and hopefully final time) at TUF 19 Finale on July 6 in Las Vegas.

"The Answer" beat the Hawaiian back in 2010 at UFC 112 for the UFC lightweight championship, and successfully defended the strap months later at UFC 118 in Boston. "The Prodigy" will be making his 145-pound debut in this five-round headliner, which is set to take place the same weekend as UFC 175 and UFC Fan Expo.

Happy Fourth of July, America.

Before completing their trilogy, both former lightweight champions will be on opposite sides of the fence, coaching a mixture of light heavyweight and middleweight fighters. Check out the full roster here. In the meantime, watch the teaser video and get an idea of what it takes to become a "prodigy."
