The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale fight card

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

One of coaches getting hurt took some of the steam out of the Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale card, but it's still quite good from top to bottom. Matt Mitrione has stepped in for Shane Carwin to meet Roy Nelson in the main event, and insted of stuffing the card full of contestants from the show, the UFC has decided to use semi-established fighters instead. When Dustin Poirier is on the undercard, you can probably figure out that the main card is pretty good for a free show. The event goes down this Saturday night at the Hard Rock in Vegas. Anyway, here's a look at the card:
