Tyranitar. Or almost any rock Pokemon.

Most Talonflames have a choice band, and sweep with Brave Bird.
But, some do have Uturn, but they will most likely have a choice band and locked into another move.

Heres a set:

Tyranitar@leftovers/assult vest
Sand Stream Ability
Adamant Nature

Stone Edge-STAB
Pursuit-Predicted Switch outs, Stab
Earthquake-Type coverage

Having Pursuit will take out Uturn switchouts and Switchouts.
Stone edge for stay-ins, and crunch and earthquake for other Pokemon

Hope I helped! ;)
