Frankie "The Answer" Edgar earned his title shot.

Edgar knocked Chad Mendes out in the first three minutes of their main event at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale. It was one of the most unexpected results one could imagine going into the fight. Edgar states his case as the next in line without much argument for who comes next.

Ryan Hall won The Ultimate Fighter with an impressive showing of grappling including one of the best back takes in UFC history.

Oh, and there was a barnburn between Edson Barboza and Tony Ferguson. The main card delivered, and Bleacher Report was here all evening recapping the action.
