Hey, first post. Sweet.
Anyway, I believe Amir has all the potential in the world. And he'd be a great ambassador for the sport because he's hilarious and has that approachable "gee, shucks" attitude. And to the OP, yes, his run HAS to be the most impressive in TUF history.
Conversley, do you think any MMA critics will use this to their advantage? A guy with virtually no experience suddenly wins a tourney and gets put into the biggest promotion in the sport?! Imagine something happening like that in the NFL/NBA?
