Could Amir win the show?

I think it's a big possibility he could win the whole thing! CB even said himself that Amir could give him the hardest time out of the 3. Amirs won 2 fights that he hadn't a chance to win...



Amir for TUF7 WINNER

He definately has something that no one else does. I liked him the most since his first fight and I think he's going to win it.

I don't like CB but I think he'll beat Amir with his wrestling. To be honest, I think Amir was the best possible match up for CB. It's clear that they want him in the finals. I think CB was just trying to come off as less of a douche by saying that Amir would be a tough fight for him. I think he knows that Tim could submit him and that he wouldn't be able to overpower Jesse.

I think Tim was his easiest fight and Jesse the hardest. Amir is an Enigma. He has the ability to adapt very quickly and that makes him dangerous.

I think it will be CB and Jesse in the finals. From there..I think it's a toss up.

On a side note. Damn jesse looks like Big John.

My prediction went to Sh!t...

Amir isn't winning the show. He has solid stand up the best left on the show but his submissions aren't good at all even though he's won two fights by submission they were terribly slow.

CB will take him down and pound him out. Amir is a good prospect should go to the WEC and devolop more but he's not ready to compete with guys like CB or Tim who are both UFC caliber MW's.

I disagree. I think Amir needs some work, but he's as good as 90% of the other TUFers that are now apart of the UFC.

You think his submissions aren't good. I find it funny that he has bad submissions, or even mediocre if I give you the benefit of the doubt, and yet he has won two of his amateur bouts by submission, as well as submitting the guy everyone thought was a beast.

I don't think he's a MW version of Big nog or anything, I just think his subs are definitely good enough...obviously.

Matt Brown was overhyped the guy hit hard but he didn't like getting hit and his ground game isn't good at all of his 6 losses 5 are by submission. Also the level of fighters fighting in Amateur MMA is often very low. His submission aren't very fluid at all.

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.
