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.”
