TUF 16 Finale Is On: Tickets for Carwin vs. Nelson on Sale Next Week
But you can breathe a sigh of relief, because the UFC has announced the fight for December 15, with tickets due to go on sale on October 12.
According to a press release, the heated rivalry between two of the sport’s hardest-hitting heavyweights will be settled as the UFC returns to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Carwin will meet TUF season 10 winner Nelson in the night’s five-round main event, after the two end their stint as opposing coaches on the latest season of TUF.
Also crowned at the Vegas event will be the winner of TUF 16, which features welterweight fighters.
"Roy Nelson has gotten under Shane Carwin’s skin all season and Shane’s ready to try to knock him out,” UFC president Dana White said. “I don’t expect this one to go the distance."
"Roy and Shane were civil to each other on ‘TUF,’ but they can’t stand each other and after having to spend six weeks together Shane said he can’t wait to knock Roy out," White added. "These two are both known for having heavy hands. Chances are someone is getting knocked out. Best part is the coaches will fight on the TUF Finale Live on FX from Hard Rock Hotel here in Vegas.”
Tickets for the show are priced at $304, $254, $179, $154, $104 and $79 and can be bought from the Hard Rock Box Office, Ticketmaster or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.
The main card will also air live on FX at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
