This match up in particular has really drawn my interest, mostly because the general consensus from the fan-base and the betting lines point strongly toward Brazilian newcomer Daniel Sarafian (7-2). Look -- I'm an honest guy and an open book, so I have no problem revealing that I wasn't able to catch most of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): Brazil, which served as Sarafian's launchpad to the Octagon. But, now, having finally taken in his performances on the show, I'm starting to understand the appeal.
The 30-year-old scored a decision in the elimination round to secure a spot in the house, then finished Team Nogueira's Renee Forte with a 2nd-round rear-naked choke and thwacked Sergio Moraes with a leaping knee to advance to the finals by 1st-round TKO. Unfortunately, an injury prevented Sarafian from competing in the TUF: Brazil finals at UFC 147, and he was replaced by Moraes, who ended up dropping a lopsided decision to Cezar Ferreira.
