Last night at The Ultimate Fighter season 10 finale Kimbo Slice got his first win in the UFC against Houston Alexander, but it did not come in the fashion we expected. Instead of the all out brawl we expected, we saw Alexander stick to a gameplan of circling to his right and peppering Slice with leg kicks.
While Slice was well trained for Alexander’s powerful striking, he says he was not prepared for his “Ring Riding”.
While Slice looked frustrated at times throughout the fight he remained patient, because he felt if he ran in on Houston he would have probably been knocked out.
Slice also said the weight cut to 215 pounds was not as big of a factor as he expected, but also said he put some weight on before the fight by ordering room service.
No one knows what weight Slice will fight at next, but we are looking forward to seeing him get back in the Octagon soon. I am sure that Kimbo will not be pushed into fights against top fighters right away, but he will be a big ratings and pay-per-view draw for the UFC regardless of who he fights.
