On Saturday, the UFC said goodbye to Spike with great performances from the newest Ultimate Fighter winners while serving up a one-sided main event. Both winners are from Jackson's MMA, proving that the elite camp can continue to churn out great prospects.

Here are Cagewriter's Three Stars from Saturday night's Las Vegas event. Tell us yours in the comments or on Facebook.

No. 1 star -- Diego Brandao: The Brazilian fighter fought back from the brink of a Dennis Bermudez TKO to maneuver into an armbar. It was so quick and perfect that Bermudez had to tap with just nine seconds left in the round. With a UFC contract, the featherweight can start showing his well-rounded game against tougher competition.

No. 2 star -- John Dodson: What was more impressive: Dodson's quick dismantling of Team Alpha Male fighter T.J. Dillashaw or the series of flips he did to celebrate? Seriously. One had a twist. The short, powerful bantamweight now will have a chance to use his skills in the UFC.

No. 3 star -- Johnny Bedford: How do you make people forget about getting hit so hard that you don't know what state you're in? Winning, of course. Bedford was knocked out by Dodson during the semifinals, but got a TKO win by battering castmate Louis Gaudinot.
