Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale Results - Demian Maia Dominates Kendall Grove

One of the top fighters in the middleweight division, Demian Maia, got a chance to fight Kendall Grove on The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale. Grove won the third season of TUF but was clearly not on the same level as Maia. Grove attempted to use his long reach for the duration of the bout but he couldn't pull the trigger often based on a fear of Maia ducking under to get the takedown.

Maia used slightly improved boxing to not get dominated in the stand-up and time Grove's punches to duck under and get takedowns. On the ground Grove managed to defend submission attempts by Maia but could not handle the positioning and the ground and pound attack of Demian.

SBN scored the bout 30-27 for Maia and all three judges saw the fight 29-28 for Maia. With the win Demian should remain in contention for the UFC middleweight title.
