Team U.S. welterweight DaMarques Johnson (9-6 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was pegged as a favorite early on in the ninth season of "The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K."

To Johnson's credit, he took care of business throughout the season and waltzed his way into Saturday's live finale at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas with two first-round TKO's and a unanimous decision win.

But along the way, Johnson was portrayed as a bit cantankerous and seemed to develop a healthy rivalry with his Saturday opponent, British finalist James Wilks (5-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

i like demarques in this fight, james is a pretty decent fighter but demarques is better than him in every area, even if wilks has a ton of credentials.
