TUF 21 Finale Highlights/Results: Wonderboy KTFO’s Ellenberger, Waterson, Masvidal Score Big Wins

(Thompson vs. Ellenberger highlights, via UFC on FOX) 

Gee golly, that Wonderboy Thompson sure can do some fancy things with his feets, can’t he?

If the MMA community wasn’t already high enough on the undefeated kickboxer before his clash with Jake Ellenberger at the TUF 21 Finale, then the *pair* of spinning hook kicks he used to put the veteran away likely made believers out of all of us. Minus a heavy right hook that Thompson ate early in the fight, “Wonderboy” was in complete control on Sunday, utilizing his lengthy, karate-style attack to brutalize Ellenberger before finishing him off with a “Knockout of the Year” contender at the end of the first round.

Check out the complete highlights and results from the TUF 21 Finale after the jump. 

In the evening’s co-main event, the guy from the Blackzilians beat the guy from American Top Team to win TUF 21. That is literally all I can say about these two fighters or The Ultimate Fighter in general. Although I’m totally sure that placing Conor McGregor in the mix against a guy he won’t even fight will be the power play that restores TUF to its former glory! Huzzah!!

Moving along…

Vitor Belfort protege (and TUF Brazil winner!) Cezar Ferreira has not had a great run of things lately, to put it as plainly as possible. After kicking off his UFC career with 3 straight wins, “Mutante” has now suffered three vicious knockout defeats in his last 4 fights. That his loss over the weekend came at the hands of Jorge Masvidal, a lightweight making his welterweight debut, indicates to me that perhaps Cezar should take a little time off. Which can only mean that he’ll back in action within a couple months.

Now here was an interesting moment from Sunday’s action: TUF 17 alum Josh Samman continued his brilliant run in the UFC by submitting betting favorite Caio Magalhaes in the first round with a rear-naked choke. Following the sub, Samman attempted to shake hands with his battered opponent, who proceeded to not only deny Samman the handshake, but spit blood at him as he walked away. Although the two made up backstage, VP of Public Relations Dave Sholler said that the organization will be looking into the incident this week. No matter what the verdict is, I’m sure Jason High is gonna be pissed.
