Two new bouts have been added to the upcoming Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale show in Las Vegas including a former show winner and a former top featherweight contender.

Bouncing back from a loss to Chan Sung Jung in his last fight, Dustin Poirier returns in December to face former Ultimate Fighter winner Jonathan Brookins.

Poirier recently joined the Florida based American Top Team to up his training, and he hopes the results show when he faces Brookins at the TUF 16 finale in December.

Also added to the upcoming card are flyweights Tim Elliott and Jared Papazian, with each looking to get his first win in the UFC.

Elliott lost in his debut bout against current top flyweight contender John Dodson, but kept the fight very close all the way to the end.

Both fights are added to the TUF 16 Finale fight card, but there has been no formal announcement by UFC officials where the bouts will land on the card.
