Brooklyn Born Fighter Wins Ultimate Fighter 7

Amir Sadollah defeats All-American wrestler C.B. Dollaway to win the season7 of the UFC’s reality show the Ultimate Fighter. With little MMA experience and a lot of heart Amir submits Dollaway by armbar from the bottom.

From wikipedia:

Amir Sadollah came on to the show with no past record in MMA. Sadollah showed that he was tough enough to be on the show after defeating Steve Byrnes by armlock. Amir got his spot in the house because of the win and became the second pick for Team Forrest. In the seventh episode, Amir went up against skilled wrestler Gerald Harris and won the fight by TKO in the second round. Amir went on to fight “The Immortal” Matt Brown in the quarterfinals. He defeated Brown by Triangle Choke in Round 2. Amir then moved onto the semi-finals where he was to face C.B. Dollaway. Dollaway won the first and second rounds of the fight but in the third round, Sadollah put Dollaway in an armbar and Dollaway immediately tapped. On the season finale of TUF:7, Amir emerged victorious over C.B. Dollaway with an armbar in the first round securing his title of The Ultimate Fighter and providing him with a UFC contract.
