Ultimate Fighter 16 Full Cast Revealed


Shane Carwin and Roy NelsonThe newest cast of the Ultimate Fighter has now been revealed with 32 participants squaring off for 16 spots in the latest edition of the reality show.

UFC officials announced the new cast on Thursday.

The cast includes former Ultimate Fighter assistant coach Cameron Diffley, who served as Forrest Griffin’s jiu-jitsu instructor during season 7 of the show.

Other notable names on the list include former Strikeforce competitor Bristol Marunde, strength and conditioning coach and nutritionist George Lockhart, and former Bellator middleweight tournament contender Sam Alvey.

The newest edition of the Ultimate Fighter will kick off on Friday, Sept 14 with a special 2-hour edition of the show. The fighters will be coached by former UFC heavyweight champion Shane Carwin and former Ultimate Fighter winner Roy Nelson.

UFC President Dana White expects nothing less than an interesting show with Carwin and Nelson at the helm.

“Carwin and Nelson are two guys who just can’t stand each other and Roy and I haven’t exactly seen eye to eye either – he’s been a nightmare for me to work with on this show with all his stupid BS,” said UFC president Dana White via press release on Thursday.

Several high profile UFC fighters are also expected to appear on the show in assistant coaching roles including former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, as well as brothers Nate and Nick Diaz.
