UFC TUF 10 Kimbo Slice Vs Roy Nelson Fight Review

Updated on September 30, 2009

I wrote another Hub a few months ago about the possible rumors and spoilers of UFC's Ultimate Fighter 10. Of course the rumor that I barely mentioned is the one that happened to be true. Roy Nelson defeated Kimbo Slice in Kimbo's first match on the show. However I seriously doubt it ends there for Kimbo, as a matter of fact I was quite pissed at Spike TV. I guess I missed the original broadcast of the show and caught the second showing where right during Kimbo's fight they go to commercial and show a preview for next weeks episode. The only problem is that in the preview they talk about how he aparently will take the place of an injured Marcus Jones who has been hurting the whole time hes been there. How crappy is that? I really didn't even feel like finishing the fight when that came on, it seriously spoiled the whole show for me this week. I did finish watching the fight though and I wasn't impressed at all by Roy Nelson.

Roy Nelson did what he had to do and did what he was supposed to do to win, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Roy Nelson has made me do the unthinkable and agree with Dana White. All Roy Nelson did was let his blubber engulf Kimbo Slice and then hit him in the face repeatedly with love taps. The only thing that Kimbo Slice was ever in danger of was having his chest cavity crushed by Roy Nelson's fat ass.

What was even more telling was that Nelson got rocked by Kimbo a couple of times and as soon as that happened, straight to the ground they went. Honestly Kimbo was in trouble as soon as they hit the mat, there was no way he was getting a guy that outweighs him by 30 to 40 pounds off of him, I doubt anybody could have. Kimbo did show that he has made some strides in the octagon, while they were standing Kimbo was dominant, he just needs to work on his ground game.

Roy Nelson also confirmed the vibe I was getting from him, he truly is a prick. He was celebrating like he just beat Brock Lesnar when he really did essentially nothing except sit on somebody. Kimbo on the other hand proved once again that there really is no reason to hate the guy, he has been humble the whole show and took the loss like a man. I can't wait to see next weeks episode to see what goes down with Marcus Jones and I'll probably watch every show for the rest of the season in hopes of seeing somebody drop Roy Nelson.

In closing I seriously hope Roy Nelson doesn't think that the "win" he got over Kimbo Slice and his actions afterward are going to raise his popularity or make people think more of him. For me all it did was lower my perception of him, but hey that could just be me, you be the judge.

      Kimbo is a good guy, but that doesn't change reality. He's simply not a mixed martial artist. He might "rock" people while standing, but as soon as he does they are going to take him down and he has no chance whatsoever at that point. That's pretty much been the argument since he was recruited into MMA. Plus, there are about a dozen guys in the UFC who are 30 or 40 pounds heavier than Kimbo and not because of a fat gut either. So the fact that Nelson was heavier than him isn't a good excuse for him losing.

      If he had come along 15 years ago when Tank Abbott and other guys who were barroom brawlers were around he woulda had a nice career, but those days are long over. Even if he had started training in MMA when he was younger, he might have had a chance to be a good MMA fighter, but he's 35 now. That's all in the rear view mirror at this point.
