Amir is the most impressive TUF contestant...Ever

Amir came to TUF with exactly 0 professional MMA fights and he finished all 4 of his opponents. Hands down the most impressive run in the history of TUF. Discuss.

I can't think of anyone that really out does him right now.

I mean this guy shocks EVERYONE, including himself. He's a very likeable guy and is so unsure of himself. It just really makes you want to see him win.

If he's this good with no experience, just think what he'll be like with several fights under his belt.

He is a likeable guy. That helps, if it was a dick like CB that was pulling these last second wins off people would probably saying they are flukes.

Imagine when he gets to a real camp and what he will look like with 8 weeks of training. Him and CB will be vastly improved. Even Riddle, who just joined his first real camp. Going to be some guys looking to make a lasting impression.

I'm stunned that Dan Cramer didn't get a spot at the finale. Although I didn't think he'd hang in the UFC he was one of the more entertaining fighters and probably deserved the spot.

As for Amir being the best ever, I think Mac Danzig steam rolling his compeition might have something to say about that. Although Amir had stiffer competition and Mac had the was able to avoid the top 3 fighters from his season he still strutted through that season with an ease.

Mac Danzig was no where near as impressive. The guy had over 20 fights when he was on TUF baisically fighting guys with little to no MMA experience. That season was set up for Mac to win. In fact, Mac should never have been on the show in the first place.

Yeah, Danzig really should not have been on the show, it was ridiculous.
His run was more impressive if you don't take into account experience, but really, there was no way he could lose the show, given who he was lined up to fight.

Diego had a pretty impressive TUF run, dismantling Karalexis, Rafferty in the first round, beat KOS pretty bad and won a split and then dominated KenFlo in the finale....hes the first person who came to mind.

On that note, Amir was supposed to lose his first main fight to Gerald....and he beat em.

THEN he was supposed to get killed by Matt Brown.....beat him

And of course, was supposed to lose to The Golden Boy, CB...and he beat him.....

Amir's run > Diego's Run

Mac was impressive, but he was clearly better than anyone else on the show. Mac fought way better competition in his career than he had to face on the show. Amir had no pro MMA fights and submitted 3 out of 4 guys and KO'd the other. All these guys were supposed to beat him and he finished them all.

Yeah, Amir handle business. The guy wasn't really known for being too dominating in any fashion, but check him out; got KO, and a submission, and it wasn't against easy opponents. Amir is one of the most likeable guys I've seen on the show, and I'm really pulling for him to make something of himself on the show.
