Only two episodes into this season’s “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series and we’re already going to see the show’s most anticipated fight. It was announced by Rashad Evans on last Wednesday’s episode that Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson will be taking on Roy Nelson in tonight’s episode.
Nelson is a former IFL heavyweight champion that carries with him a ton of experience in the sport, something that Kimbo is clearly lacking. Not to mention the fact that the competition Slice has faced is nothing compared to what Nelson has already seen.
Although Nelson has won seven of his last ten pro scraps, his three losses came against the likes of Ben Rothwell, Andrei Arlovski and Jeff Monson, respectively.
On the other hand, Kimbo has fought against Bo Cantrell, Tank Abbott, James Thompson and Seth Petruzelli, a bout he lost. However, let’s not forget to mention the slew of talent the street fighting legend must have faced in his many backyard battles (sarcasm at its finest).
The show will begin at 10PM ET/PT on Spike TV, and is guaranteed to be a ratings blockbuster for the UFC and its longtime network partner.
Ready or not, Kimbo is headed straight for our living rooms with an opportunity to silence his critics … or prove all of them right.
