“TUF 9 Finale” prelims

The “TUF 9 Finale” took place Saturday night at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. There were a number of preliminary fights not shown on Spike TV, including four fighters from “The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K.”

With two submissions and one TKO, the preliminary fights actually had more finishes than the main card. Four of the five fights on the main card went to the judges for decision.

The most controversial decision of the night had to be Melvin Guillard’s split decision win over Gleison Tibau. While Guillard seemed to have the advantage on the feet and landed some good shots, Tibau repeatedly took him to the ground, maintained more control, and dealt out some ground and pound. However, there is the old saying, “If you let it go to the judges, there is no one to blame but yourself.”
