The Biggest Fight in Ultimate Fighter History!Category: MMA
The biggest fight in Ultimate Fighter history is here. This Wednesday, Internet sensation Kimbo Slice tips into the Octagon in the toughest fight of his career. He’ll face former IFC Heavyweight champion Roy “The Big Country” Nelson in the fight everyone will be talking about.
Kimbo Slice versus Roy Nelson on the all-new Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights.
UFC President Dana White has this to say:
“This is the true test for Kimbo Slice. We’ll gonna find right now, what he’s got.”
Kimbo Slice has little MMA experience yet having fought in only 4 matches. He is best known as a street fighter in unsanctioned street fights and became an internet sensation when videos of those fights were uploaded on YouTube. He won his first 3 matches as a professional MMA fighter but lost his last fight via knockout in only 14 seconds to Seth Petruzelli. Since then, his career has spiraled down. It did not help either that EliteXC, the organization he fights for has gone bankrupt allegedly because of that controversial loss. By joining The Ultimate Fighter, Kimbo Slice is hoping to resurrect his career.
In his way however is his true test, former International Fight League World Grand Prix heavyweight champion Roy Nelson. The man is the most experienced among the reality TV show’s participants having already fought in 17 matches with a record of 13 wins (6 by KO, 4 by submission) and 4 losses. He is the heavy favorite to win the show.
This will be a very exciting fight. Both are standup fighters who are not afraid to mix it up face to face. The only ending to this fight will be a knockout to either of them.
UPDATE: Kimbo Slice loses to Roy Nelson in round two via referee stoppage.
