The Ultimate Fighter 16 begins on FX on September 14th, and we now know who will be competing. The UFC sent out a press release with the list of 32 welterweight hopefuls today, and it includes some names you've probably heard before. A gaggle of ex-Strikeforce fighters including Bristol Marunde, Ricky Legere Jr, and Cortez Coleman along with former M-1 and Bellator guys. The coaches are heavyweights Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson.

As usual, the first episode will show all the elimination round fights as they cut down the cast from 32 to 16 fighters. The TUF 16 Finale takes place on December 15th, and the main card will air on FX. Carwin vs. Nelson will be headlining the event.
