All i know is CB had better of used this time to sort his gass tank out, becouse i really think amir will knock him out in the finale if he gasses again like i think he did in the last two fights. Hopefully amirs been at a top camp sharpening his skills to, mabeys he might of went to extreme to train with forrest? Ill still most likely pick CB by UD, but it should be a good fight.

For a dude whose record is 0-0, Amir's really impressed me in this competition. That armbar was lightning fast.

If you told me after the first show that amir would beat cb and make it to the finals i would tell you your crazy. He has been very impressive. his guard if good and he out struck cb on the feet. IMO cb will win the rematch though . IMO He was clearly winning up to that sub. He had some good ground and pound had amir busted up. The layoff should improve cb's gastank.
Either way we will see both of them fight in the ufc again.

amir impressed me by far the most. he made a fan out of me thats for sure. he improved a shit load from the start of the show to the finish. i would imagine he's gotten even better since. anybody know where he trained for the finale this weekend.

It definitely seemed that CB gassed by half-way through the second round. I doubt he can improve it that much by the finale.

CB seemed like he had a lot of power in his punches, but they all seemed to be looping hooks. With both CB and Amir studying each other's vids we should have a great rematch.

cb gassed and then just layed and prayed. iam just throwing this out there so don't get pissed but if cb wins the show then i might consider it riged.

Amir has made me a fan as well; it's hard not to respect a guy who went through the house without any professional fights and won all four rounds in the tournament, shooting him into the finals....it's incredible.

I wouldn't go that far. Lets be honest, CB was dominating the fight till he got caught. I wouldn't go as far as to call it lucky, but you could definately see how CB could have beaten Amir if it had lasted a few minutes longer.

I haven't been watching this season too religiously (but I'm hoping to catch up on sat when they play that marathon before the finale)...

With that being said, I was very impressed with Amir... From what I'd heard CB was the guy to beat on the show... I know it's already been said on here, but how f'n impressive for a guy with no pro fights to show that kinda poise in the cage??? His standup looked decent, and he looks like he's got a stellar ground game... He can take a shot, and I don't think anyone can question his heart... Overall a great fight, and a great young talent for he UFC to develope

Amir by 3rd rnd tko. CB is gonna gas and this time amir wont be clinching giving cb the opportunity to take him down. Even though i think they did the only fair thing they could do i still think amir got the crap end of the stick. He beat the top pick on the show only to have to fight him again.

I couldn't agree more, it makes his earlier victory a bit hollow, still a stellar performance from Amir, i knew he was going to beat CB, now i can only hope that he can do it again. War AMIR

He's been training at Xtreme Couture with Forrest. I think Amir will win again, CB gasses so easily because he puts everything into every punch he throws. I think CB will gas again and Amir will pull out the W.

C'mon man lighten up... It's not like it was a japanese/european PPV that only a select few could watch... It's on cable tv and aired at any restaurant or bar with a TV across the US... Don't be a Debbie Downer, it was a great fight, you should watch it!

I've been on the bandwagon very early on and I'm hoping for another upset come Saturday.

Amir beat the four best guys in the house.

Steve Byrnes, Gerald Harris, Matt Brown, and CB Dollaway

Heck if I were to list who i thought were the best guys on this season of tough it would look like this:

1. Amir
2. CB
3. Byrnes
4. Harris
5. Brown
6. Creuder
7. Taylor
8. Riddle
9. Kramer
10-32 (blah)

Amir being number 1 best 2-5...FREAKIN AMAZING!

Also, sucks for Brynes.

Q: But this has a non spoiler title so why would you click this thread and read it to find out the spoiler?

A: Some ppl love to complain

Yeah poor Byrnes really drew the short straw getting Amir in the 1st fight
