UFC: The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale results: Johnny Beford defeats Louis Gaudinot by TKO (strikes, referee stoppage) at 1:58 of round 3.

Johnny Bedford is a big bantamweight. At 5'10" and 135 pounds at the weigh-ins the day before the fight, Bedford probably put on 20lbs by fight time. Louis Gaudinot is a small bantamweight. At 5'3" and barely 135 pounds, he would be much better off cutting a few pounds and fighting as a flyweight. Alas the UFC doesn't feature a flyweight division.

That's just fine with Johnny Bedford. His opponent called him "a bully who likes to fight flyweights" before the fight. That proved a prophetic description of last night's bout in Las Vegas. Bedford didn't do anything fancy to the green-haired Gaudinot. He just used his size to slam him to the ground and then beat up his helpless foe.

Bedford got the mount quickly and landed nasty elbows he put his weight behind. Then he stood up and began body kicking the outmatched Gaudinot. Kicks to the head of a downed opponent are illegal in MMA, but kicks to the body are entirely kosher. That doesn't mean they don't hurt though and Bedford added lots of flying knees to the body of the turtled Gaudinot to get the finish.
