The UFC continues to crank out seasons of their reality show. The 16th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" is set to debut on FX on Sept. 14. The teams will be coached by heavyweights Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson.
The season will follow a familiar format. 32 fighters will compete for the chance to enter the "TUF house." Then 16 fighters will compete for a contract with the promotion. This year, the tournament will be single elimination without the wild-card selection used in previous seasons.
After the show is complete, Carwin and Nelson will square off in a much anticipated bout. The two have traded barbs in the media and on Twitter over the past year.
Carwin will look to get back on track after coming up short in a UFC heavyweight title eliminator at UFC 131. The former NCAA Division II champion wrestler and interim heavyweight champion has not won since claiming the interim version of the belt back at UFC 111 in 2010.
Nelson has somewhat resurrected his career after being outclassed in back-to-back fights by Junior dos Santos and Frank Mir. Since then, he is 2-1 with victories over Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Dave Herman. Nelson himself compete on the reality show and claimed the season 10 championship.
