Fight Night...with a little Tribe talk

Last night was the season 7 finale of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike, and we were treated to a few decent fights. But before we get to that, let's talk about C.C. Sabathia. In yesterday's game against the Dodgers, Sabathia worked 7.0 innings and struck out 10. Oh, and he blasted a shot over the right field wall for his first homer of the year as he provided the Indians only run until they erupted for 6 in the 11th. I know the chances of the Indians keeping him around are getting slimmer with each loss, but how much fun is he to watch?
As for the fights, we were treated to some decent match-ups, one of which was Diego Sanchez dropping Luigi Fiorivanti with a solid kick to the chops, followed up by a devastating knee that ultimately ended the fight for Fiorivanti. The other decent fight of the night was Amir Sadollah battling C.B. Dollaway for the title of The Ultimate Fighter. I was expecting a knock down drag out fight but instead we saw Sadollah once again finish Dollaway with an armbar. This one took significantly less time, and was disputed by Dollaway. He maintains he didn't tap, but after seeing the replays, he definitely patted Sadollah's leg.
The main event for the evening saw Kendall Grove beat up on a bearded Evan Tanner. Tanner has been known to sport some funky hair styles but this dejected Ron Burgundy look was definitely the oddest of all. The beard, paired with his inability to accurately connect with a punch spelled disaster for him.
