Just a quick reminder that The Ultimate Fighter Season 16 starts tonight on FX at 9pm ET.

The opening two hour special will feature the elimination fights to establish which of the 32 welterweight fighters makes it into the TUF house where they’ll be put into teams coached by heavyweight stars Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson.

Speaking of the new season, UFC president Dana White said, “The one thing I love about The Ultimate Fighter is, every season is different. Same scenario, same goal – everyone wants to win the contract, but every season has its own things happen to make it exciting and this one is no exception.”

Also, as a heads up to UK fans – you can watch TUF 16 on Monday nights at 12 o’ clock.
