Jonathan Brookins won season 12 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) and he was back at the scene of the crime at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, tonight (Fri., June 1, 2012) for the TUF 15 Finale in a featherweight match-up against Charles Oliveira.

Both men have been up and down in their short UFC careers, having won and looked great while also having lost and looked terrible. Something had to give when they met each other inside the Octagon tonight in a bout that was expected to feature fireworks.

It came through, too, with the Brazilian showcasing an improved striking arsenal (save for the lack of head movement) before breaking into his old bag of tricks with a tight submission in the second round to get the tap and the victory.

Not such a TUF guy after all, huh?

Oliveira, a slick submission wizard with a tight Brazilian jiu-jitsu game, came out firing punches and looking to prove he can stand and bang when called upon. Unbelievably enough, it was working beautifully, too.

Brookins was eating punches all throughout the round, backing up and getting tagged left and right. He was never rocked, though and pushed forward to round two.

He wouldn't make it to three.

That's because Oliveira decided to to show off both aspects of his game by locking in a guillotine choke to get the tap. If he wins "Submission of the Night" it will have been his fourth inside the Octagon.

Slick.
