Roy Nelson, Shane Carwin named coaches for TUF 16

by John Morgan | source:

Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight contenders Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin will serve as coaches on the 16th season of The Ultimate Fighter, and they'll meet in a season-ending fight in the show's live finale

UFC President Dana White exclusively revealed the coaches' selections to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday

TUF, the UFC's long-running reality series, returns to FX in September, and taping begins next month. FX also will air the live finale from Las Vegas in December

"This is going to be a very interesting dynamic between these two heavyweights," White said. "They both have huge punching power and great chins, but outside of the octagon, they couldn't be any more different

"These two have been going at it on social media for a while and don't seem to like each other very much, but they are going to be seeing a lot of each other during this series."

Awesome... Hope you go back to your roots Shane. You took too much of the nonsense criticism seriously after Lesnar. IMO, you're not a points fighter. You had JDS, but you tried to pace yourself. Blast Roy in the first.

All I really want to see is one of the WWs say something stupid, Shane just glares at him, the WW in question pisses himself.
