Observations from My Couch: TUF 15 Finale

  • Erik Perez didn't defeat John Albert.  Referee Kim Winslow defeated John Albert, and should therefore get the win.
  • For someone who looks so uncomfortable in striking exchanges, Joe Proctor sure does score some exciting TKOs.
  • Watching Cristiano Marcello fight is like watching a car crash in slow-motion.  You know something ugly is about to happen and you have a pretty good idea of what it's going to be, but you're transfixed anyway.
  • The Jury is still out on Myles Jury. 
  • Daron Cruickshank and Chris Tickle are two guys who are fun to watch who will go nowhere in the UFC.
  • Congrats to John Cofer for becoming a permanent part of the TUF highlight reel.
  • He's not a top guy in the division, but Charles Oliveira's skill and ability are more than enough to separate the men from the boys - and more than enough to put a TUF winner away.
  • I'm absolutely gutted that Al Iaquinta lost.  He'll be back, though, and kicking ass in the Octagon in no time.
  • I don't know where this new and improved version of Martin Kampmann came from, but I like it.
