Chiesa, the ultimate fighter winner, needs a break anyway. He must have injured his hand prior to the finale because I don't recall him landing any hard shots.

he has pretty shitty striking to begin with. He is a grappler first and foremost and that is what he used to win his fights. Hopefully he can develop some better technique otherwise he will get eaten alive at 155

That guys gonna look like a TOTALLY different fighter the next time we see him. thats how this always works except this time there wasn't a huge gap between the last episode and the finale

Didn't Chiesa have 4 fights in 5 weeks? No big surprise he or Iaquinta, or both, were going to have something that would land them a hefty medical suspension.
