The Ultimate Fighter 13 is over and Tony Ferguson is the winner. He received the six-figure contract in the UFC with his excellent KO performance.

Brock Lesnar was operated on May 27, 2011 which confirms he is out of UFC 131, but his team did win the Ultimate Fighter 13. Junior Dos Santos will fight Shane Carwin Saturday night at UFC 131, winner gets a shot at the UFC heavyweight title against Cain Velasquez who is 9-0 with 8 KO’s and who took the title from Brock Lesnar.
