Last night during ‘The Ultimate Fighter III’ Finale, Randy Couture was officially inducted into the UFC hall of fame.
Last night on ‘The Ultimate Fighter III’ Finale Kendall Grove and Michael Bisping were victorious and crowned ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ for their respective weight classes. Kendall and Ed went to war and Kendall pulling off a judge’s decision. Both guys had to fight off some great submission attempts as well as some ground and pound but Grove just seemed to be the fresher fighter. Afterwards Dana White decided to award Ed Herman a six-figure contract for his efforts in the fight. Michael Bisping teed off on Josh Haynes and eventually the ref had to stop the fight because Haynes was taking too many unanswered shots. Afterwards Haynes announced that he would be moving down to the 170 lb division. Kenny Florian made easy work of Sam Stout choking him out early in the first round putting himself that much closer to a lightweight title shot.

All of the fighters made weight and Dana White concluded the weigh-ins by showing Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz the 1969 Z28 Camaros the UFC would be giving them.
