The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale: Weigh-in Results for Nelson vs. Mitrione Card
The 16th season of The Ultimate Fighter will come to a close on Saturday night in Las Vegas, and when the dust clears Mike Ricci or Colton Smith will leave the Octagon with a UFC contract.
Before the two welterweights face off there will 10 other fights that need to take place, including some must-see scraps—and don’t forget the main event between Matt Mitrione and Roy Nelson that will follow the Ricci versus Smith scrap.
Opening the FX portion of the card will be a featherweight scrap between Dustin Poirier and Jonathan Brookins. Poirier is a fighter looking to get back on track after a loss to Chan Sung Jung in a “Fight of the Year” candidate, while Brookins is looking to show that his win on season 12 of TUF was no fluke.
Also on the FX card will be the always-entertaining Melvin Guillard facing off against the resurgent Jamie Varner. And entertaining, you want entertaining? How about Pat Barry versus Shane del Rosario in a heavyweight bout that screams slobberknocker.
Following Barry versus Del Rosario, UFC president Dana White will crown the TUF winner and the event will then wrap up with a heavyweight bout between Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione. All in all, not a bad night of free fights in FX.
