Tonight at 10 PM on Spike TV, Kimbo Slice will make his unofficial UFC debut against veteran fighter Roy “Big Country” Nelson on this season’s Ultimate Fighter.
This is a fight many expected would happen at the end of the season but in typical UFC fashion, they have thrown a much hyped fighter in Slice into the snake pit early. Kimbo has been training and expanding his MMA ability with team Rampage but he faces a true heavyweight veteran in Nelson.
While Slice was backyard brawling on YouTube, the unassuming Nelson was working his way towards the IFL heavyweight championship. Nelson, known for his seriously big belly, has lost back to back fights, to former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski and perennial top 20 HW Jeff Monson, since leaving the IFL. Both men will be looking to make a big statement with this fight.
This will undoubtedly be the highest rated Ultimate Fighter episode and early reports suggest Kimbo is going to fare better than his previous outing...
