Preliminary card (Facebook)
Featherweight bout: Bryan Caraway def. Dustin Neace Caraway via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:38 of round two. Good win, but this fight was nothing special.
Featherweight bout: Steven Siler def. Josh Clopton via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28). Siler was aggressive and looked fearless.
Bantamweight bout: Roland Delorme def. Josh Ferguson via submission (rear-naked choke) at 0:22 of round three. Delorme has now beaten both Ferguson brothers (he beat the other in the TUF preliminary round).
Bantamweight bout: John Albert def. Dustin Pague via TKO (punches) at 1:09 of round one. Kind of a premature stoppage, but Pague was hurt.
Featherweight bout: Marcus Brimage def. Stephen Bass via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). This is Bass' first official professional MMA loss. He was going for broke in round three. Good fight.

Bantamweight bout: Johnny Bedford def. Louis Gaudinot via TKO (knees) at 1:58 of round three. Poor green hair guy would by good at flyweight (125lbs), but that weight class isn't in the UFC yet. Size absolutely matter here. Gaudinot got destroyed. Bedford calls out John Dodson (who beat him in the TUF semis) after the fight.
Lightweight bout: Tony Ferguson def. Yves Edwards via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). I had it for Edwards, but close, great fight.
Bantamweight bout: John Dodson def. T.J. Dillashaw via TKO (punches) at 1:54 of round one. Stoppage was a bit premature. Crowd booed, but Dodson has such charisma he didn't care. He did these ridiculous flips and dances. He is LOADED with charisma. He thanked everyone, said he doesn't care if you cheer or boo him, just watch him. And this man was already a top 10 flyweight. Now he is the Season 14 bantamweight Ultimate Fighter winner. DODSON = $$$$$$.
Featherweight bout: Diego Brandao def. Dennis Bermudez via submission (armbar) at 4:51 of round one. He is your Featherweight Ultimate Fighter winner. One of the greatest one round fights of all-time. Bermudez caught him with a big shot at the end, but left his arm out there, which Brandao took full advantage of with a desperation arm-bar. Amazing fight. Both guys got a standing ovation. These two have a bright future in the UFC.
Middleweight bout: Michael Bisping def. Jason Mayhem Miller via TKO (strikes) at 3:34 of round three.
This fight sucked. Miller won round one with a takedown, but was completely gassed and barely defending himself rounds two and three. And this was a FIVE ROUND FIGHT?! Bisping was exhausted in his post-fight interview, probably from high emotion hating/trying to kill Mayhem, as well as a bad weight cut (he missed weight his first two tries). Bisping somewhat turned babyface, shaking Mayhem's hand, putting him and the TUF cast over, saying he's just a working class British guy with a great team and beautiful family. Man, even evil British heels need love sometimes.
Mayhem apologized to everyone, saying he's not making excuses about being nervous and got tired. And the winner of this fight would've fought Chael Sonnen or Anderson Silva? Are you serious, bro? God bless both of these men and in Bisping's defense, he did say he needs some work before a title shot, but Sonnen, Silva, and probably Mark Munoz, would mop the floor with them based on tonight's performances. And Mayhem's face was a mess. Damn. Overall, good night of action on the last major UFC special on Spike TV.
