TUF 10 Finale immediate reaction

The Kimbo Season of The Ultimate Fighter is finally over. The finals featuring Roy Nelson and Brendan Schaub just ended. Check out some immediate reaction on that fight and the rest of the card.

Roy Nelson vs. Brendan Schaub
I was just writing down “Roy Nelson gets hit a lot, but he lands his” and then he laid Brendan Schaub out cold with an overhand right. I guess Dana White can say that he is impressed now. Nelson truly is the perfect veteran. He keeps his composure and always implements the same game plan. After having trouble getting into the UFC, it is nice to see that Nelson is where he should be. I’m glad he is still pushing for that Burger King sponsorship deal too.

Schaub was very impressive on the series, and he was landing straight punches against Big Country. He is a high quality athlete, and he will make an impact in the division before his career is over.

Houston Alexander favored to win over Kimbo Slice – a look at the TUF 10 Finale betting odds

TUF 10 Finale airs on Spike Dec. 5

Let’s take a look at the TUF 10 Finale fight lines. Here are the betting odds from BetUS.com. If you can get the nerve to lay down some coin (I rarely can) on this card, there is some real potential here to make some money. Remember when it comes to betting, it’s all about the odds. You may actually think one person will win, but due to the odds, you will place money on the underdog because the payout is so good. Make sense? For instance, in reality Jon Jones probably has the edge on Hamill, but because Hamill is a +200 underdog, I would take that bet, because he does have a good chance at winning. Most of you know this I’m sure.

•(TUF 10 FINALS) Roy Nelson -220 vs. Brendan Schaub +175

This seems about right. Schaub has a puncher’s chance, and he hits hard, but from what I’ve seen his boxing does not look as technical as an Arlovski. I think Roy will be too experienced for him, and he will do what he does best, take Schaub down and either submit or pound him out. Roy and his pretty hair should win this one.
