I don't think he is ready for title contention yet. He looks outstanding, but let's not forget that he has been facing Bubba and Cella. Cella actually was giving him a decent fight before that beautiful knock out. That being said, I still think Uriah is a beast and he has a lot of potential. If he keeps up with his improvement, I could see him going that far. Right now though? Let's not rush things. We've seen a lot of guys on the ultimate fighter look awesome and we hyped them up a lot, only for them to fail to deliver once being in the UFC. No one has looked as good as Uriah in a while, but I think we've seen too many premature hype trains derailed for us to jump on that title contender band wagon already. Besides, a very quick knock out over a guy like Bubba doesn't tell us very much. He made it more than clear that he didn't want to be in that fight anyway.

I hope Uriah keeps it up though, that finish of Cella was brutal and beautiful at the same time. The sky can be the limit for this guy.

He looks pretty good but so far we haven't seen him fight anyone any good. Bubba was beat before he ever got in the ring.
What happens when a good wrestler is able to keep him down? Does he have good whiskers?

His TDD isn't bad, Weidman is the best wrestler at 185 and Hall was able to shrug off a takedown.

Weidman then dropped him on the feet and pounded him out because Weidman's a badass.

He needs to deal with some of his mental issues but he could definitely be a contender with that striking power. This season actually had some decently talented guys; most of the seasons have been terrible in that respect for a while.

agreed.

I'm sure he's gonna get a few losses in the UFC coming off TUF, especially if the UFC want to push him fast. But those losses can be good for him if he learns from them and get stronger mentally.

I wouldn't rush him in to anything. Let him work on his ground game a bit and get some easy wins under his belt first.

Some progression like TUF Championship -> Chris Camozzi -> Tom Lawlor is probably more likely than throwing him to the wolves (Bisping, Lombard) right away.

Uriah looked pretty good striking from the bottom last night. Dylan didn't bring much offense with him, so maybe Uriah wouldn't look as good with someone more offensive, but he certainly is the most skilled fighter to come out of TUF. Kelvin is going to have a tough job ahead of him.

Hat's off to Chael's coaching too. He's done a great job with his team.
