It was ugly, it was grimy, and it was, quite frankly, boring as all hell, but Colton Smith is the latest winner of The Ultimate Fighter. He earned his glass trophy, six-figure contract and complimentary Harley Davidson motorcycle by grinding Mike Ricci to dust, completely overwhelming his fellow welterweight finalist for nearly three full rounds at last night's (Sat., Dec. 15, 2012) TUF 16 Finale at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Roughly 13 minutes of the 15 minute bout were spent with Smith smothering Ricci and effectively negating his offense. It made for a restless "Sin City" crowd but it was enough to get the job done and ensure that Smith will have at least one more fight inside the Octagon. The big question is whether anybody watching tonight will want to see it. Maniacs, are you looking forward to Smith's next appearance?
