TUF 14 picks, Vegas-style: Questions abound for lesser known fighters


LAS VEGAS - This is a huge night for so many fighters in Sin City.

Michael Bisping is fighting to stay in the mix for a title shot against Anderson Silva. While Diego Brandao, Dennis Bermudez, John Dodson and TJ Dillashaw are all out to prove they're legitimate UFC prospects.

The other cast members from Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter?" They all look to prove their losses during the show were a fluke.

Betting on TUF Finales always ranks as one of the biggest challenges for MMA bettors. It's difficult to judge how talented some of the competition was on the show.

Is Brandao, who won three fights via first-round TKO, overrated? Is Dodson simply too small for Dillashaw? Maybe the uber-confident Dillashaw is overlooking Dodson.

Adam Hill from the Las Vegas Review-Journal joined myself on ESPN1100/98.9 FM's "MMA Insiders" to break down TUF 14 using the Las Vegas numbers.
