Let's wrap up TUF 18 Finale: "Maynard vs. Diaz" from this past weekend, shall we?

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale: "Maynard vs. Diaz" blew the roof off the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Nov. 30, 2013, featuring a main event of Nate Diaz ending his trilogy with Gray Maynard by knocking "The Bully" out in the very first round.

The co-headlining attractions saw the crowning of two new Ultimate Fighters, as Chris Holdsworth won the men's glass trophy by submitting David Grant while Julianna Pena stopped Jessica Rakoczy on the women's side.

The other two main card bouts saw Jessamyn Dukes score a unanimous decision win over Peggy Morgan and Raquel Pennington look impressive in her decision victory over Roxanne Modafferi.

In cased you missed any or all of it -- or just want to keep the discussion alive -- below are links to all the major storylines borne from Saturday night's event in Las Vegas.
