LAS VEGAS – Uriah Hall came up short in the finals of Season 17 of "The Ultimate Fighter," but he still has something to show for his efforts during the season.

On Saturday, he dropped a split decision to Kelvin Gastelum. But Hall picked up a $25,000 bonus for the season's best knockout for his head-kick KO of Adam Cella on the season's third episode.

Bonuses of $25,000 also went to Gastelum for the season's best submission, and Dylan Andrews and Luke Barnatt for the season's top fight.

UFC officials announced the winners during Saturday's TUF 17 Finale, which took place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The main card aired on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.

I used to support TUF but now I'm feeling bitter with the recent release of mid to upper level guys. 10 more no-name guys clogging up the roster while Fitch and Volkmann toil in the underground.....it ain't right!

I felt the need to have this short rant on this thread. Sorry.

I agree with these bonuses.

I think as far as talent goes we might see some of these guys sticking around the UFC. A couple of these guys are all ready mid tier fighters. I only expect them to get better in time too.
