Meh, tough to get excited about any of these TUF "prospects" these days. We'll see what weight class they actually fight at and how they fare against real competition.

Soooo Roy Nelson vs Pat Barry? That has to be the obvious match-up for these two.

Mittrione should have fought smarter and let Nelson gas.

Lol none of them has any KO power, submission/striking/wrestling skill or an athletic advantage. They are like D league quality at best.

that was a fun card. i need to start watching more of these TUF finales.

looked to me like nelson semi-rocked mitrione several times before that ending sequence. sure jerked his head a few times, at any rate. but, damn... those mitrione kicks were pretty brutal in the early going.

I didn't see much of TUF 16 or The Smashes, but I think there's good prospects from TUF 13-15 and TUF Brazil.

I do think there might be some "hidden gems" to be found for the relatively newer and lighter weight classes. I mean Dodson is fighting for a title coming up. Dennis Bermudez has looked alright.

But 155 and above? I think the explosion of MMA has picked the talent clean there. I'd be shocked to see any legit contenders come through TUF in those weight classes.

I like the smoke in the background, fitting for Diaz.

I think Johnson, Ferguson, Jury, Lawrence, Chiesa, and Cruickshank have some promise and then there's the MWs with some promise like Mutante, Sarafian, Bodao, and Serginho (hard to say since they haven't fought much in the way of quality opponents, though). Also, Nijem, Rio, and Iaquinta have a bit of promise.

  • .Nothing sweeter than seeing Meathead put away, another overrated bum from the TUF, if only Pat Barry lost as well I can't stand the dude ever since he let Cro Cop be-friend him in there fight than get subbed in embarrasing fashion.
  • Maybe next fight put Shane Del vs Meathead for loser leaves town match, Mike Pyle after getting trashed by Rory has come back very strong.
  • Brookins chin up hands down = althought Dustin did not impress me in that fight tho hes looked far better before but solid bounce back win.
  • I don't really see a bright future for any of the TUF winners in ethier shows tbh, Whitkar has the most potential due to being a super athlete but other than that yawn.

Hendrix just KOed Kampmann/Fitch and Diaz is coming off a loss in which he was outclassed by Condit how is he getting a title shot? Did Hendrix break his hand or something punching Kampmann. This is not quiet on the same level as Chael getting a title shot vs Jones but wtf is going on with this match making.

Losing your last fight and talking a lot of shit is now the way to earn a title shot in the UFC.
