The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale Wiki Update Wiki

The Finale of The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights essentially proved what hardcore fans already knew. Roy “Big Country” Nelson was going to win the tournament, and he did so with flying colors, knocking out undefeated heavyweight Brendan Schaub in the first round. In other action, undefeated light heavyweight prospect Jon “Bones” Jones looked perfect in a one-sided drudging of respected wrestler Matt Hamill, but a series of illegal 12-to-6 elbows to Hamill’s face handed Jones his first loss in the form of a disqualification.
