I thought it was odd that CB said Amir poses the most problems for him out of the three. I actually think this is the best matchup for him. Amir is a good striker but with barely any experience and an almost average ground game. CB will take him down at will which is a shame really because I wanted Amir to win it all. He's just entertaining with a good personality. It'd be funny as well because he has no professional fights under his belt.

Jesse on the other hand is strong with a good ground game and Tim has a good submission game. Amir has the least experience on the ground. He has average submissions but thats about it.

I hope he finds a way to win, though. I just don't see it happening.

And while his submission are good enough to catch the guys he's faced so far they aren't good enough to catch UFC level fighters. His stand up is probably good enough to hang with above average UFC strikers but he doesn't have the wrestling to keep fights on their feet. Look at what Gerald did to him CB is 10 times the wrestler Gerald is.
Ok, I'll agree with that. For the reasons highlighted above, Amir reminds me of Cummo. Good Thai striking, but sub par TDD. However, Amir actually holds off takedowns for a decent while(see his fight to get on the show) and tries for submissions from his back. Also, while on his back he constantly throws elbows and punches doing damage.

Of course he isn't perfectly well rounded enough to be a top contender in the UFC, but he could hang with a lot of the guys out there right now.

Just a question, is CB 10X the wrestler as Gerald, or is CB simply more well rounded than Gerald and hence looks better? CB throws shots and tries to improve his position, whereas Gerald was content to stay in guard.

No CB is a far bettter wrestler than Gerald. He is also much more well rounded but CB was an all american Gerald never made nationals.

I think Admir has a very real shot at winning the show. For as critical as he is about himself, and how humble he is, to the point of having the worst self-esteem of any fighter in the world.

He has incredible heart, is very unorthadox and has so many unique weapons he brings into the octagon.

On a side note. Damn jesse looks like Big John.
That's how it's going down; Amir's wins were not impressive.

I got Jesse winning it.

I thought Amirs wins were very impressive. Big underdog in both fights and got the submissions locked in quiet nicely

However he beat two guys who really aren't big time fighters. Matt Brown is a guy who hits hard and does nothing else. Gerald is a good wrestler but does nothing else well.

Amir won 2 fights but neither was that impressive.

Amir will win against CB. He just know how to survive and find ways to win. CB will get cocky and made mistake.

I see as Amir vs Jesse in the final.

He's had a hell of a lot more difficult fights then CB in this competition.

Anyway, I don't think he'll win the show since he's the worst of the remaining 4, hence why they gave him CB. That being said, I hope Amir knocks him the **** out.

You're just a cook...
