The UFC unveiled its latest incarnation of the Ultimate Fighter last night in the form of a live event featuring all sixteen of the qualifying bouts. While the show’s production received mixed reviews there was no question the action was entertaining throughout, especially in the case of eight individuals who won their way into the house with an opening round stoppage.

Fueling the pace, fights were only a single frame in nature and each finish earned the related competitor a $5,000 bonus.

The sixteen scrappers exiting the Octagon after a successful showing were highlighted by Chute Boxe staple Cristiano Marcello, highly-touted Miami prospect Mike Rio, Anderson Silva student Justin Lawrence, and former contestant Myles Jury who made his way back onto the show after a knee injury took him out of an earlier season.
