The Winner of The Ultimate Fighter 12 is…

tuf_12Orlando born submission artist Jonathan Brookins (12-3) is the latest of a select few who have earned a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship via their reality series “The Ultimate Fighter”.  The pupil of the Gracie Barra Association garnered himself a hard earned decision victory over the more than game Springfield striker Michael Johnson (8-5) this past Saturday night at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas , NV on the Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck.
All though both fighters hailed from the same team (Team GSP), the two waged war at the beginning of the round in high hopes of earning a fighting contract with the UFC.
Johnson came out swinging, landing some solid as well as effective shots to the face of Brookins in the opening round, but Brookins proved to have himself a solid chin in taking the shots and making it out of the opening stanza.
But round two was pretty much all Brookins who took the fight to his opponent as well as taking Johnson down to the canvas utilizing his ground game. Round three would be the deciding factor of continues their fighting career and who continues their career with a big fat contract from the UFC. Johnson fought his heart out but it would be Brookins who would walk away with the win via decision after taking Johnson to the mat and keeping him there till the final bell, granting Brookins the right to be called victor and a future major player in the lightweight division.
The Ultimate fighter was conceived in 2005 and has catapulted many of young fighters to stardom with the series showing the fight fans what a fighter goes through in search of making it to the top.
TUF has also produced eighteen victors and making household names such as Forrest Griffin, Stephan Booner (which has to be one of the greatest fights of all time); also the likes of Diego Sanchez, Nate Diaz can thank the UFC for putting a spotlight on their respected careers.
The Ultimate Fighter is a breeding ground for young fighters and will seemingly continue help build not only careers but the popularity of the UFC.
