he UFC will host an event on Dec. 15 in Las Vegas. It just won't be UFC on FX 6.
Instead, The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale will take the slot, which is expected to come at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Sin City.
) first reported the event date this past week, but according to the UFC, it'll be the TUF 16 Finale rather than UFC on FX 6.
The event, which is expected to feature a main card on FX and prelims on FUEL TV, concludes the soon-to-debut 16th season of "TUF," the UFC's long-running and groundbreaking reality-competition series. Today, the UFC announced 32 competitors for the show, which features heavyweight contenders Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson as head coaches. Carwin and Nelson also fight at the TUF 16 Finale.
The show uses a traditional single-elimination format, including an immediate elimination round of fights that cuts the fighter pool from 32 to 16 (check out The Ultimate Fighter 16 cast). Those winners become official cast members and will appear each Friday night on the show, which kicks off Sept. 14 on FX.
Unlike "TUF 15" earlier this year, the show uses a traditional pre-taped format and won't feature live fights.
In addition to Carwin vs. Nelson and the tournament final, TUF 16 Finale's undercard likely will feature eliminated cast members, as with past seasons
