The first three fights of The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale are in the books, and here's how it went down.

In the opening bout of the night, Erik Perez picked up a disputed submission victory over John Albert in a spirited bout. Albert had Perez trapped in a triangle but ate a ton of shots trying to finish it. He eventually switched to an armbar that Perez escaped from. Perez turned the tide of the fight by diving for his own face-down armbar and locking it up. Albert never tapped but apparently yelled out, which was enough for Kim Winslow to stop the bout at 4:18 of the first round. Many were confused by the lack of a tap or verbal submission, but Perez won the bout nonetheless.

The first bout on the Fuel TV card featured Jeremy Larsen taking on Joe Proctor. Larsen started well on the feet, being aggressive and landing some solid shots. Proctor came back with his own strikes, then grabbed a flailing Larsen in the clinch and landed a solid knee to the chin. Larsen fell on his back and Proctor pounded him out at 1:59 of the very first round. Larsen didn't do such a good job of protesting the stoppage, falling down in the middle of his plea.

The third bout of the card (second on Fuel) saw former Chute Boxe jiu-jitsu coach Cristiano Marcello taking on slugger Sam Sicilia. Sicilia was constantly winging huge haymakers and mostly missing for most of the first round. He still won the round though. Marcello finally set up a takedown in the second but was unable to get it. He stood toe-to-toe with Sicilia for the first half of the second and was holding his own with the tiring Team Cruz fighter, but Sicilia finally landed the big shot that crumpled Marcello. He pounded on him for a while on the ground before the referee finally jumped in (probably a little late). The finish came at 2:53 of the second round.
