5. Jamie Yager vs. Rich Attonito (The Ultimate Fighter)

This fight was questioned a lot for being a part of the main card, but come on Dana White isn’t stupid.

3. Jamie Varner vs. Kamal Shalorus (WEC 49)

A classic 15 minutes brawl that was tainted by the judge’s ruling the fight a split draw. The two fighters stood toe to toe for most of the fight with Varner stunning Shalorus on multiple occasions. Showing a rock solid chin though out the fight, Shalorus kept coming forward attacking Varner. That attacking though cost Shalorus a point when his foot found Varner cup too many times, which ending up costing Shalorus the win.

2. Mark Hominick vs. Yves Jabouin (WEC 49)

Jabouin started out so fast and looked to be on another speed setting the whole fight round. Hominick weathered that early storm and took over in the second round.
