Jonathan Brookins beats Michael Johnson to become 'The Ultimate Fighter' 12

by John Morgan | source:

Michael Johnson was so close to winning the 12th season of "The Ultimate Fighter," he was probably considering exactly where he was going to display his trophy.

Then suddenly, it was all snatched away.

Fellow "TUF 12" finalist Jonathan Brookins mounted a rousing comeback in the final two frames of the pair's tournament-final matchup and earned a unanimous decision and the title of "the next Ultimate Fighter."

The matchup served as the main event for Saturday's The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale event, which was broadcast on Spike TV and took place at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

With the victory, Brookins runs his official win streak to four fights and will forever be known as the winner of "the Ultimate Fighter 12" instead of "the dude that lose to Jose Aldo." Johnson sees a three-fight win streak snapped in his octagon debut.

"The least skilled fighter to ever win the ultimate fighter, this is how much of a joke it has become."If you are referring to stand-up then you are right, but his BJJ and wrestling are light years ahead of many (not all) of the other winners of the Ultimate Fighter.

The least skilled fighter to ever win the ultimate fighter, this is how much of a joke it has become. He did have alot of heart, and never lost his confidence. I was rooting for him just so dana could get pissed off, he obviously didn't want brookins winning this fight.

He clearly needs alot of work on his stand-up if he's going to be remotely competative.
