The lineup for the show is set with the final piece being who DJ fights. Moreno vs. Benoit is on the main card, which makes sense as Moreno has the upset of Smolka.

If Wikipedia didn't spoil it for you already, Tim Elliott is indeed fighting Demetrious Johnson on Saturday for the Flyweight championship.

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.

Since Shelton vs. Pantoja are fighting on the Denver card, I am guessing Ogikubo will be brought back and fight around then.

Maynard has no respect whatsoever for Ryan Hall.

Ion Cutelaba would have beat a ton of light heavyweights tonight. Just not Jared Cannonier. What a crazy fight.

Jared Cannonier needs a little more aggression and a lot more fight IQ, but that dude has no quit in him at all.

If I ever move to Miami, I'm going to get my hair cut by Jorge Masvidal's barber.

Fuck, that was just getting fun.  I'm a weirdo who loves these types of fights.  Put Masvidal or Ellenberger in the cage with anyone in the top 25 welterweights, and I'll be glued to my television.

Every time I look at Henry Cejudo I think, "How does someone with a head that big only weigh 125 lbs.?"
