So, anyone out there still think Bryan Caraway is too soft to become an "Ultimate Fighter?"

The submission-savvy featherweight, who struggled with his anxiety on season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), made a splash in his Octagon debut at last Saturday night's (Dec. 3, 2011) live finale, strangling fellow contestant Dustin Neace en route to a second round tapout.

And he did it with a broken hand.

Caraway (16-5) may have not only gotten over his pre-fight jitters, but also demonstrated his heart with this weekend's gritty performance at the Palms. If nothing else, he'll at least move on to bigger and better things inside the 145-pound division.

Anyone else ready to give "Kid Lightining" a second look? Or have you already seen enough?

Too soon to tell?
