Kelvin has a shot against Uriah IMO. He needs to get inside and make it an ugly fight, cut him off and don't follow him around like Dylan did. Easier said than done, I know. Uriah has an excellent jab and will enjoy a significant height and reach advantage. He also has an intimidation factor which is difficult to quantify. So far Kelvin has fought to win and doesn't fight scared despite his youth and underdog status. Kelvin can not fight Uriah from a distance or he is toast. He needs to get past that jab and stay in Uriah's chest, work punches inside make things uncomfortable for Uriah and go for take-downs. Rinse and repeat.

that jab was vicious last night. I think he broke the kiwi's nose with it
1) Uriah isn't a rookie. He's almost 30, and has fought professionally for practically 8 years already. There's very little chance that he'll demonstrate any great ability to improve, and it's quite likely that this is his absolute peak.
2) Better fighters tend to just not get involved with TUF at this point. Weidman was going to do the show, but decided to skip it. Weidman mopped the floor with Uriah:
PRIDE- The Greatest Myth Ever Sold!
I must say, this TUF is the first TUF in a long time, that I've actually watched in it's full entirety. And, I've really enjoyed it. I like Jon and Shell, so that was a big reason to keep me interested, and the fights were pretty decent as well for the most part. I'm enjoying buying into the Hall hype, and he does look very sound on his feet to be fair. Those scary knockouts helped as well.
I like Kelvin as well, and I'd love to see that kid do well. Like Shell said, he is a grinder, and he will be a problem.
Bottomline, excellent season, really enjoyed it, and hyped for the finale.
Kill or be killed.......
