I love that Dana said "most" guys may be in the UFC or something to that effect. A bit of an exaggeration I'm sure but it seems appropriate after the opposite happening last year.

He's already fought Chris Weidman (lost by TKO) and Costa Philipou (lost by split decision). That being said, he's improved a lot since those fights.

I think i've probably watched 12 of the 17 seasons, this was absolutely my favourite. Great presentation, great fighters, great coaches. Well done, UFC.

I don't think it was televised, may have been on Facebook. I haven't seen the fight, just saw the outcome.

He got run over. The guy is nowhere near UFC material.

It really seemed like his main goal was just to not end up on the wrong end of another highlight reel KO.

it looked like he quit twice. in his first fight he looked content being on the bottom and losing the fight then he looked like he didnt want to be in the ring for the wikd card fight. i still think clint should have fought bubba for that spot. i thought for sure kevin casey wouldnt be one of the fighters to get a ufc fight but looks like im wrong again. sad thing is i want him to win cause i hate josh whiny ass.

This, can't blame him too much, Hall is a freak

And ya, I'm very surprised Bubba is getting yet another shot. He's been thoroughly outclassed.

Bones probably asked Dana to do him a solid because his friend Bubba needs the money.

Hooking up your friends and training partners is pretty common in MMA. GSP does it all the time. Fedor was probably the best example, he made sure his buddies got fights when he was a star.

Everyone on the show got a fight in the finale aside from Zak Cummings who is injured. I'm sure he'll get his fight in the near future as well.
