So It's Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson On The Third Episode Of TUF 10

New, 23 comments

My initial thoughts are wow. Kimbo Slice draws the overall favorite to win the show in his first fight in the house. The second episode was heavily concentrated on Slice and his lack of a ground game, and they even showed some training footage of him on the ground. Whereas, Nelson was billed as the overweight guy with a good ground game and that's exactly what he is. Actually, Nelson just received his black belt in BJJ a few weeks ago from Renzo Gracie.

Now, this is where it gets interesting. TUF 10 so far has given a lot of face time to Kimbo Slice and rightfully so since he's a ratings gold mind. This fight is coming much quicker than most people anticipated. I don't think anyone would have thought that Kimbo would have to face Roy Nelson in his first fight in the house. However, with the previews of the third show, they seemed to be hyping Kimbo even more. Surely they would want these ratings to continue well past the third episode of the season. I guess what I'm getting at is, is it possible that Kimbo Slice beat Roy Nelson? Sound off.
