The Ultimate Fighter Team US vs Team UK FINALE is coming up and the “King” of The Ultimate Fighter once again stars. 

No! Not Forrest.  Nope! Not Rashad. Not you Either Serra.

Diego Sanchez is the King of The Ultimate Fighter.

Obviously, the other fighters have had more success (if measured by titles) after the show, but I don’t think it is easy to find someone who has had more success fighting on the Ultimate Fighter. 

I’m not just talking about his blowout of Ken Flo either.  His upcoming fight against Clay Guida will be his fourth appearance on an TUF finale.

After Season 1 he beat Ken Flow (To become the first Ultimate Fighter)

After Season 2 he beat Nick Diaz

After Season 7 he beat Luigi Fioravanti

Now, after season 9 he is set to face off with Clay Guida.  If he can pull off his fourth victory on the Finale of the show, he could very likely be putting himself back into contender position.

Wouldn’t Diego vs. Florian for the title be an interesting idea?  Obviously, I am getting a head of myself on that one…

TUF has been good to Diego, in the first season, it was his proving ground and it has been again two times since. The early fights turned him into a ‘somebody’…

This time, it could potentially turn him into the number one contender… You may not agree with me calling him the “King” of the Ultimate fighter, but if he wins on Saturday night, he has my vote for the most Ultimate Ultimate Fighter!  

Prediction: Sanchez over Guida
