Talk about Amir after the rematch with CB.
Forrest also fought and beat for some very tough guys before being on TUF and had a lot of MMA experience. He also wasn't able to finish all his fights on the show.

Rashad Evans didn't finish any of his fights. He also had about 10 fights before TUF.

Amir had 0 MMA fights and finished all 4 of his opponents. All the guys he fought had a lot more fights than him. I'd say it's more impressive. Finishing fights > winning by decision.

On paper, Amir may be the "most impressive contestant, ever", but doesn't really mean a lot unless he keeps winning. Which I hope he does.
I think you are a bit confused. I didn't say that Amir was the best contestant ever on TUF as clearly there are a lot of fighters that are better than him that came off the show. I'm just saying that his run on the show is more impressive than anyone elses.

Also, Pete Sell and Jorge Rivera were on the comeback season. Both guys had a couple previous UFC fights and were fighting against other UFC veterans, so it's a little different.

I think pre TUF records actually do matter. Just look at the guys who have won the seasons. Forrest Griffen had wins over Jeff Monson and Chael Sonnen pre TUF and a fight with Jeremy Horn. Diego Sanchez was 11 - 0. Mac Danzig had over 20 fights. Michael Bispbing was 10 - 0. Joe Stevenson had about 30 fights before the show. So experience is definatley an advantage.

Also, Amir wasn't well know before the show.
