made his debut appearance in the UFC
via Ultimate Fighter against Houston Alexander
. One of
the most slowest ultimate fighter fights aired on the Spike network.
When you think Kimbo Slice, you think of his youtube videos
"bare-knuckle & action packed"!! After watching this match-up I
personally felt like throwing on my trunks and gloves to head on over to
the Ultimate Fighter try-outs...I mean is that it...seriously!?
circled the octagon as Kimbo anxiously followed behind...Houston stuck
to his game plan and landed some early round inside leg kicks "but thats
about it". These kicks didn't seem to phase Slice at all in the first
round, but as the second round pressed on with some of the same action
that occurred in the first round Slice appeared to be limping forward.
to dog on Kimbo, his ground game has come a long
way...his match up against Alexander proves at least that much. Slice
cleaned up some of his "Keven Randleman" like slams with some heavy
elbows, but to no avail as the fight pressed on. Kimbo still has a long
way to go and to say that Kimbo has a future in the UFC is saying a lot.
He has a lot more work to do if he wants to be a household UFC name.
That includes more ground work and definitely more endurance training
and ground game training.
So if any one is wondering..."did
Alexanders game plan work?" Well maybe, after all he did last three five
minute rounds with the YouTube phenom Kimbo Slice. All that was left
out of the game plan was actually obtaining a "W" and after hurting your
opponent you might want to get on him before he recovers..!?!? I'm just
saying you had a chance pal.
We will see a lot more from mister
Slice, hopefully he has what it takes to be a household UFC name like
Rampage Whackson....whoops Jackson that
