Michael Chiesa says he envisioned becoming The Ultimate Fighter from day one of the fifteenth season, the series’ first on FX.

Chiesa realized his dream on Friday night, giving full credit to his late father, who passed away during his time on the show. Chiesa surely made his father proud, weathering an early storm by Al Iaquinta to eventually get the submission and win the TUF Live Finale.
