Bubba/Casey is just basically a sacrificial lamb as neither guy is good enough to win another fight.
Bubba probably got the spot, because A he trains with Jones and B he was wanting to fight Casey to begin with.

Remember the fights are 2/3 days apart so when Clint and Zak lost they lost earlier in the week. So they would have to fight the same week. Their is a reason that in the history of the show those guys that fight last never get picked for the WC. Dana likely told the fighters and the coaches that Hester would get his shot at the finale.

I understand why the choices were the way they were, but can someone tell me why Jones and Sonnen keep talking about Bubba like he's a top guy on the show? Maybe Sonnen was just baiting Jones into picking his friend for the wild card. Hopefully that's the case.

Bubba isn't that great, he looked frightened as Kelvin was finishing him with that rear naked choke in their fight. Then his excuse was just baffling. He seemed all frustrated saying "He just kept coming...." as if he wasn't supposed too. What? You weren't expecting your opponent to give it his all just because he's young? You weren't expecting your opponent to show heart after he's made the sacrifices you have to get onto this show? You thought he'd just lay down and take a beating because you had so much more experience? I don't understand that excuse. It's as if he wasn't expecting Kelvin to put up a fight just because of his inexperience. If anything, that shows amateurism on Bubba's part. My rant is over, but Bubba didn't show a whole lot of heart in his fight against Kelvin. The only reason he may beat Kevin is because Kevin isn't that good himself at this point.

I pretty much assumed that Sonnen was playing Jones.

LOL they didn't screw up the quarters... my guess

Josh defeats Quinlan
Hart defeats Gastezulm
Luke defeats Dylan
Hall defeats Hester after Bubba quits before the fight

And then we'll get Team mate vs Team Mate as Hart/Josh and Hall/Luke fight for a final spot.

Totally. Bubba didn't look to keen either. Hope Uriah smashes both of them.
