Max Holloway defeats Pat Schilling via unanimous decision (30-27 across the board): The story of the fight was Holloway picking apart Schilling with body punches. It got kind of bad in the later rounds where Schilling was in so much pain that he could barley keep his hands up and flinched whenever Holloway fainted a body shot.

Charles Oliveira defeats Jonathan Brookins by submission via guillotine choke @ 2:42 of the 2nd Round: Oliveira kept constant pressure on Brookins with takedowns and elbows and never allowed him to get comfortable. The finish came when Oliveira applied a modified guillotine and sat down on it and finished while going to his back and squeezing tight to force the tap.

The Ultimate Fighter Live Tournament Final 

Michael Chiesa chokes out Al Iaquinta via rear naked  @ 2:47 of the 1st Round to win the contract: Iaquinta came out aggressive at first and kept Chiesa off balance. Chiesa caught one of Iaquinta’s kicks and grabs a body lock. Chiesa gets the hooks in while Iaquinta gets warned by the referee for holding onto the inside of Chiesa’s glove while trying to defend the choke. Chiesa gets his arm under the chin and Iaquinta tries to fight it but he refuses to tap and goes to sleep.

This has been one hell of a journey for Michael Chiesa who lost his father at the beginning of the season. Chiesa was awarded the TUF Live trophy along with the keys to his new custom Harley Davidson motorcyle and a Tap Out endorsement. Urijah Faber was also awarded the keys to his custom Harley since he was the winning coach.

 

Main Event 

Martin Kampmann over Jake Ellenberger via KO @ 1:40 of the 2nd Round: Ellenberger won the first round by using his power and landing some powerful shots against the cage. Kampmann landed a short right hand that really wobbled Ellenberger and Kampmann runs in and delivers three knees to the chin. Ellenberger falls to the canvas and referee Steve Mazzagatti rushes in to stop the bout. Kampmann should change his name from ‘Hitman’ to ‘Comeback Kid’.

– Flyweight Tournament

Demetrious Johnson defeated Ian McCall via majority decision as two judges scored it 29-28 Johnson and one scored it a draw: McCall stormed out of the octagon as the fans chanted bullshit. I scored it 29-28 McCall and Kenny Florian even disagree with the decision. McCall control the fight by utilizing inside trips to secure takedowns. Johnson didn’t score a single takedown. McCall show no sign of first time jitters and displayed a lot charisma. He is going to be a star.

 

Joseph Benavidez defeated Yasuhiro Urushitani via TKO due to strikes at 0:11 of the 2nd Round: Benavidez came out and immediately dropped Urushitani with an over hand right. He jumped right on him and pounded him until the ref called a halt to the action.

He kept getting hit with punch after punch and was taken down a few times even though Alves couldn’t do anything with it. The finish came when Kampmann hooked the guillotine as Alves shot in for the takedown.
