Country/Reem for Reem's tune up fight would work nicely.

Ricci is the more talented fighter but that's pretty much exactly how I expected it to play out. I look forward to seeing him back at 155.

Not a good night for the refs, in my opinion. There were two fights where the refs took way too long to stop it after guys went out cold. Then Herb Dean had a chance to step in and give Mitrione his mouthpiece back, but held back even when neither guy was throwing punches.

Mazzagatti also missed the nut shot on Ricci.

I agree thought 2 fights coulda been called quicker. Im ok with herb not giving the mouthpiece, he was waiting for a lull in the action to give back the mouthpiece.

1. You can't stop a contest every time somebody loses a mouthpiece or else we'd have guys spitting them out to get stoppages in the middle of rounds. If you lose it, so be it.

2. Matt Mitrione loses his mouthpiece in every fight i've seen him in so far. I don't know if he's chewing on the damn thing or what, but he needs to keep it in place. A concept I could see a football player having trouble with.

3. That was the most boring TUF finale in recent memory.

4. rustam khabilov is a sambo machine.

More great fights aside from the TUF Finale but I can't fault Colton Smith, he really had one way of winning and he executed his gameplan to a tee. Both guys should end up dropping to LW for their next fights which really goes to show how lackluster the rest of the "talent" of 170'ers were on the show. Very happy that Barry was able to get the big KO, he needed that one.

Just read the Colton's wife was jealous of Ricci. Smith hasn't cuddled her that long their entire marriage.

However, he has attempted to choke her more times than he did Ricci.

So annoying that this isn't aired live here. Not sure if it's a West Coast thing or what, but I get the prelims live, and the post fight show live, but the main card is aired 3 hours later. Had to watch it on Fox Deportes. Lol.

Mitrione is a really big dude. Really dwarfed Roy in the cage (not that it mattered). Always seemed like he had a real good chin so I was a little surprised to see Roy drop him like that. Not sure what's next for him at this point. Roy's always in that limbo where he smokes guys below him, but gets smoked by guys above him.

Barry landed a bomb that wobbled Rosario, then the huge left to put him down, and then the final right that sealed the deal. I don't think anyone could've taken those three punches in succession. He's real likable and can be very exciting, but once again the second that fight went to the ground he looked terrible. I'd really like to see a bit more progression in that regard. (It may have been mentioned here) but I'd love to see Barry/Hunt. Hopefully somehow his fight with Struve gets scrapped and they can set that up.

I think I mentioned it earlier, but it was good to see Lombard win in impressive fashion. Would really like to see him get the Belfort/Bisping winner.

I thought Barry showed great progression with his submission defense on the ground. Look back at his fight with Crocop or others and the improvement is pretty obvious.

I think Siver would pick Cub apart. However, I thought Pearson would've done the same and we know how that turned out. Guida would likely just dryhump Cub to victory. Cub's not much more than a brawler with heavy hands. He can be fun to watch though.

Brookins doesn't have the slightest bit of an ego. Watch the Ultimate Fighter season he was on to see proof of this.
