Did Yager dodge a tough fight?

Not saying Attonito isn't a tough fight, but after Yager was so vehemently hated by several house members, especially seen in the finale, are we to presume that he dodged fighting one of them? After all we clearly saw in the final episode that it is he who is the bitch.

Word; he is most likely to absolutely brick him in the face, whereas Hammortree and Uscola and what not, he could probably beat.

I strongly doubt Yager had the option to choose his opponent, especially after throwing in the towel on TUF. Probably more like he'll fight whoever they choose for him for whatever salary they want to pay, or he's gone.

Dana likes Hamorrtree, and I think is giving him a fair shot for wanting to fight and prove himself against a guy who is of like mind and skill in Camozzi. Clayton's shoulder is still messed up from what I understand, and he was eliminated pretty soundly in the quarters. I'm not sure what the deal on Kyacey is. He's a horrible fighter and he should really swallow his pride and get a normal job, because lord knows he won't be making any money to support his family as a fighter. I think Dana wants to give Yager a competitive fight, and Kyacey isn't the answer.

First I thought you ment the outside fight with uscola at the house. Well, he bitched out of that one for sure.

Actually, I don't blame Yager for not going outside. You may think it was cowardly, but it was actually smart. If he did go outside and exchanged some punches, him and Uscola would get thrown out of the house and ruin their chance to ever fight in the UFC. It's happened before on the ultimate fighter. I'm not trying to defend Yager because his attitude did annoy me and he did talk too much, but he did the right thing business wise in my opinion.

On a side note, I think that Attonito is more of a challenge than Uscola and Hammortee at this point in their careers.

In my opinion Attonito is one of the, if not THE, best fighter on TUF11. So him facing Yager is the best thing that could've happened for the people who dislike mister Jamie

Great points. I use to defend Yager, but after quitting and then calling people bitches afterwards, my support left real quick. Rich will absolutely serve him more than Kayce, or Hammertree.
