The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale ā€” Live Results & Commentary

John Dodson vs. TJ Dillashaw

We get a video profile on TJ Dillashaw, showing him training at Team Alpha Male, carrying his girlfriend down the street, and calling John Dodson creepy. Dodson says beeing short is a strength because he can get in an out of tight places. He gives Dillashaw some flack for ducking him in the TUF house. Dodson’s familiar grin is gone before the fight, standing across the cage from T-Dill. For once, he’s deadly serious. Shit, as they say, just got real.

Round 1: Dillashaw misses a leg kick wide. Dodson tags Dillashaw with a left, stumbling him backwards. Dillashaw tries a kick to the body. Body kick Dodson. Dillashaw throws a leg kick. Hook and head kick from Dodson. Dodson lands a monster left hand as Dillashaw moves forward, then another left to put Dillashaw on the mat. Dodson gets to hammer-fisting, and Herb Dean stops the fight right away. Dillashaw was struggling for a leg as Dean pulled Dodson off. Dillashaw is upset, maybe rightly so.

The crowd boos the stoppage. John Dodson def. TJ Dillashaw via TKO, 1:54 of round 1. John Dodson is TUF’s first-ever bantamweight champ. He giggles like a psychopath after the decision is read. “You can hate me if you want; just watch me,” he says. Bit of an attention-whore, this guy. But astounding power for his size, and his celebratory off-the-cage acrobatics are always entertaining.

And now the $25,000 TUF 14 bonuses…

Submission of the Season: Dennis Bermudez for his guillatine choke of Akira Corassani in the semi-finals

Knockout of the Season: John Dodson for starching Johnny Bedford in the semis.

Fight of the Season: Dustin Pague vs. Louis Gaudinot in the quarters.

Diego tells us he doesn’t even look at Facebook. No games, no girls, just crazy. He’s surrounded with a lot of good people at Greg Jackson’s. This will be the first time that his family watches him compete. Bermudez is fighting out of Long Island, and has taken “losing” out of his vocabulary. He doesn’t need his English subtitled, which is much less fun.

Diego Brandao vs. Dennis Bermudez

Round 1: Hard leg kick from Brandao to start. Bermudez grabs Brandao and pushes him to the cage, but Brandao escapes. Bermudez throws a flying knee that misses. Bermudez takes Brandao down but takes a savage upkick. Brandao is up, taking a knee on the way. Brandao lands a punch combo. They trade kicks. Overhand right from Diego. Bermudez brushes Brandao back with punches then lands a flying body kick. Brandao drops Bermudez with a body/head combo. Bermudez is up. Leg kick Brandao. Brandao again lands a big punch, but Bermudez keeps his legs this time. Brandao launches a flying knee and his momentum takes Bermudez to the mat. Bermudez stands, but Brandao slams him. Bermudez up and Brandao just misses with a head kick. Knee from Brandao. Brandao walks into a right hand and gets dropped. Bermudez rushes in to finish it. Brandao grabs a leg to defend himself. Bermudez still slugging from the top. Brandao snatches an armbar out of nowhere. Fedor/Coleman 1 comes to mind. Bermudez’s arm might be broken. Christ, Brandao has ground skills too? Featherweights beware.

In what may earn Fight of the Night honors for this card, Diego Brandao def. Dennis Bermudez via submission (armbar), 4:51 of round 1. Diego actually does a good job taking us through the replay. He gonna buy a house for his mom, yeehaa.

Please, please, please forgive me if this has already been said, but seriously, Bisping is realistically of gatekeeper status in that division. Regardless of this decision, as surprising as it kind of is. And Miller...

For those who care, I'm digging Russian Circles, "Empros and Atlas Moth, "An Ache For Distance."

skimming through the comment threads on a liveblog make me wonder why there isn't just a chat room in here.
dodson is irritating and unlikeable. tough loss for bermudez since he was doing so well. miller looked retarded, disappointing.

I'm too legit to quit.
Elentius- December 3, 2011 at 9:29 pm
Yeah because adrenaline dumps are exactly the same as not having the skills. Fuck all of you Mayhem doubters. You will see you fucking morons. He took the first round and all the bitch punches your pussy count could throw while having nothing in the tank. You people do not know shit about MMA or what it takes. Please stay the leisure site that you are and do not ever try to become legit. Thanks in advance.

@Karma. I think your right, and @Drano, cheers bro, very fucken enjoyable afternoon at the Tater
NinjaVanish- December 3, 2011 at 8:38 pm
I wonder if I'll be able to make a post without Jizzninja jocking my dick and telling me I stole his name (been posting here for years kthnx) or his fight ducking, internet troll of a girlfriend J3t rushing to compliment his every post about me? I'll check back tomorrow.
dranokills- December 3, 2011 at 8:21 pm
first off what a great night of fights. Loved em all(but 1) even though all the dogs didn't win like I wanted.
Mayhem you need to change your goddamn nickname to "swings like a fucking girl", cause that was the weakest, sorriest, telegraphed, punching I have ever seen. I think J3T could beat your ass, and he's a salad-tossing butt-pirate! To say I am disappointed in miller's performance is to put it just slightly. Fuck you Jason, go back to training camp for preteens cause that blew. You made Queen-kong look good, and he's absolute shit in the standup.
Loved watched Dodson put it on dilldoshaw, that little cunt acted like he was the second coming of GSP, and ended up looking like shit.
Here's to the bro's, FBF, Karma, and even RSparrow, you guys were life of this party tonight...pure class. Here's to you.

Sleep well Rsparrow! Let the affects of those pushups settle in sir.
bigashs2- December 3, 2011 at 8:04 pm
@TeilaTuliTooth I was just about to say... Didn't Rogan ask him a direct question about Silva, and Bisping didn't even acknowledge the name?
RSparrow- December 3, 2011 at 8:03 pm
Have a good night playas
TeilaTuliTooth- December 3, 2011 at 8:00 pm
Bisping just ducked Anderson Silva. After Joe served him up on a platter.. Bisping.. you never fail to disappoint.
Jason, dude. you've been a coach on TUF. How about being a student next? Dominick Cruz could teach you a thing or two about stand-up (not comedy).
KarmaAteMyCat- December 3, 2011 at 8:00 pm
@FBF; I think the hate is finally getting to Michael honestly it would get to anyone at some point and to a certain degree who can blame them? It sucks being hated by the world I mean the guy has kids and even if he can kick the others kids dads asses it's going to become an evident problem for his kids sooner then later when they go off to school and all the kids chant "Your dads a wanker". I think when Michael got into this it was to be the guy on the poster above every kids bed and I would bet to a degree it's gotten a tad bit out of hand. Yes I have a softer side.

fatbellyfrank- December 3, 2011 at 7:56 pm
Convincing win to Bisping, both guys well behaved in post fight interviews, maybe DW had a little word to Bisping about positive promo?
RSparrow- December 3, 2011 at 7:49 pm
Nerves or lack of conditioning? Either way... he's gonna have a tough road in the UFC. This aint strikeforce MOFO
KarmaAteMyCat- December 3, 2011 at 7:48 pm
@BG; I Guessed the ROUND do I get something? LOLOLOL
KarmaAteMyCat- December 3, 2011 at 7:46 pm
I just want to say this now and I honestly do not care who wins but Miller looked a bit smaller then normal and I am not trying to make excuses but he just looks thin
RSparrow- December 3, 2011 at 7:42 pm
Uh oh fellas... this is kinda sad....
TeilaTuliTooth- December 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm
ooh, time to switch of the Telly and let my imagination fly...
TeilaTuliTooth- December 3, 2011 at 7:37 pm
Oh my... Jason's standup...
RSparrow- December 3, 2011 at 7:36 pm
Millers striking is ridiculous. Come on bro, get him back down.
