this is the first season of TUF i've watched all the way through since season 2. i jumped in and out on season 4, and followed season 10 until i got to see the one fight i wanted to watch (Nelson vs Kimbo, which ended up being episode 1 or 2). i really enjoyed it. the 'all champions' idea was a great hook for me. was surprised to see Hiro and Shelton make it as far as they did, i was pretty sure early on we were getting a Pantoja vs Elliot final.
i'm actually fairly surprised that the final never got spoiled, at least that i saw. i wasn't looking for spoilers, but i figured that i would've had it ruined for me at some point. glad that didn't happen.

that being said, Tim looked good, but not nearly good enough to beat DJ. in the final with Hiro, he was gassed pretty hard early in round 3. i know it was a tough fight, but we all know DJ has the lung capacity to go for 5 rounds easily. should be a decent enough fight, but i doubt too many are predicting a new champ.
