The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale Wiki Update Wiki
In a twist on the concept of the first three seasons, the fourth season of The Ultimate Fighter featured two tournaments—one each in the middleweight and welterweight divisions—contested between former members of the UFC roster looking to fight their way back into relevancy in their respective divisions. The winner of each tournament would be granted a title shot after the season was over.
In the middleweight finals, grappling ace Travis Lutter submitted Canadian striker Patrick Cote with an armbar in the first round, while Matt Serra won a close and controversial Split Decision over Chris Lytle to get a shot at the Welterweight Championship. Cote, Serra and Lytle all successfully revived their flagging MMA fight careers following the finale, whereas Lutter fell out of favor with the promotion following a disappointing showing against Anderson Silva for the title.
