According to sources close to UFC, Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis are likely to be named coaches of season 16 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” The upcoming season is expected to revert back to a taped format rather than stick with the live format used for season 15.

Both lightweights are coming off of impressive victories where they showcased their elite level striking. The match up makes for some serious fireworks as the fight is unlikely to hit the mat unless it is from someone getting dropped.

Another strong rumor is that Ricky Legere Jr. and Saad Awad will be members of season 16. Both fighters train out of Millennia MMA in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and have competed under the Zuffa banner with Strikeforce. Legere is on a four fight win streak and Awad holds a three fight win streak as well.

Look for more news coming soon about TUF 16.
