Why Kimbo Slice Is in Trouble Against Roy Nelson on Next Week’s “Ultimate Fighter”

We know Roy Nelson is going to have an advantage on the ground against Kimbo Slice on next week’s episode of "The Ultimate Fighter," but can he slug with ‘Ferg?  The video evidence suggests, yes he can.  "Big Country" may not be the world’s most technical striker, but he can take a shot and throw one back, and if you’re still standing in the same place when he does it’s probably going to end badly for you.  Just take a look at the video evidence after the jump if you don’t believe us.

BTW, who’s that handsome son of a bitch in the video where Roy talks us through his overhand right?  That guy seems really smart and funny.

Kimbo was making him look estoopid when they were sparring in the first episode.

Plus, I clearly recall seeing kimbo beating the chit out of someone from the up/down position on the trailers to TUF 10. The thing is, it wasnt a big fat guy. So either Kimbo beats Roy and phuicks somebody else up or he loses, and comes back to fight cause someone else could'nt...

Roy Nelson is a heavyweight Chuck Liddell.

I will laugh so hard if Big Country knocks out Kimbo. Also, yes I agree, those last fights were the WORST I have ever seen, even on YouTube. I've seen high school fights on Break.com that were better.

Too Bad Roy Nelson can't fight with a shirt on cause that motha is FAT!

And I think Shivers definitely won that first round but both should have lost due to suckage, that fight was barely more exciting then the first weeks, fight where Rampage's fighter didn't even throw one punch, and he went the full ten.

Is Brett Rogers on the Roy Nelson diet?

But what is crazy is that Roy goes full steam for the whole fight in all those above clips, he is like a Tele-Tubby-Terminator.

I am rooting for Kimbo I actually think him winning will gain more fans for the sport, but if Roy wins and wins the show it wouldn't be bad he has a personality. Both of those statements will piss everyone off.

Roy Nelson does not impress me, he is a fat man with some cardio who throws punches like a girl. He reminds me of Tank Abbot in he throws and throws and throws and against shitty competition he connects. PLUS he is a douche who thinks he is smarter than coaches who are trying to show him something and wont shut up long enough to listen, seriously, KIMBO hasn't done anything to warrant my hate, so here is hoping he puts fat ass Nelson into instant death.

I hope I am wrong also but the odds are against it, Team Rampage is 0-2 so far, if Kimbo loses that will make them 0-3 plus Rampage would lose his top pick. Doesn't look good for ole Kimbo. Look at the bright side, we still have Chuck on Dancing with the Stars for round 2, eh, eh........... There we go big fellas.

could roy nelson make 205 if he did jenny craig for like a month?

"Anyone else have a feeling that next week get to see Rampage mess up a door after Kimbo loses?"


I remember seeing that incident as part of the promo for the show. But I seriously hope that you're wrong, Viva Hate, 'cause if it turns out to be true, The Drop in viewership for TUF 10 will be DRAMATIC.

And I just don't think it makes any sense that Kimbo would lose his first fight UNLESS the Fight ends in a draw, perhaps? How about THAT scenario?

Shivers walks around with the look of a defeated man. He depresses me -- that grizzled ex-marine who gives life one more go in a zombie flick before sacrificing himself to save some teen starlet. Also, does it count as a take down if you fall on someone?

Nothing tops McSweeny's combination showboating, running away, and then keeling over out of breath.
Viva Hate- September 24, 2009 at 7:53 am
I agree with J-Dog, Shrivers won that "fight." I forced myself to watch it two more times, it was agony, but Shrivers did way more and he by far won the first round. Shrivers landed a ton of shots in the first, scored a takedown, and was close on a submission attempt, McSweeney landed a few leg kicks thats it. If anything it should have been a third round.
K.E.G.- September 24, 2009 at 7:36 am
Two of the judges in the gave shivers an 8 in the second round and McSweeny a 10. I'm not saying Shivers should have one the second round but at least call it 9-8. Either way that fight should have gone a third round but not even the judges wanted to sit through any more of that shit and just gave the fight to the least tired of the two.

Was it also necessary to replay like 7 minutes from the first episode? "I like the way you work, Kimbo Slice". "Thank you very much, Rampage Jackson" (awkward moment). Yeesh.
J-Dog- September 24, 2009 at 7:26 am
I think big "timber me"-Shivers won that sorry excuse of a fight last night, but hey what do I know.... agreed the lack of cardio displayed on both sides was pretty sad.

OpShut- September 24, 2009 at 7:26 am
@Shu Nuff - Agreed, not sure how anyone could give the 1st round to McSweeney. Was surprised rampage was not more upset at the decision.

@Ben(s) - Does last nights um, fight, provide inspiration for another top 10 list? Ten worst gas-outs in MMA history?? Screen grabs of those two staring at each other from 15 feet away, and the Coleman/Shogun rest period would be some high comedy.

Kimbo defeats Roy via murder in the second.
Fight Fan- September 24, 2009 at 7:00 am
That was a truly pathetic display last night. Not a shred on martial arts in the whole fight. Wait...is punching a kicking considered a martial art?

Couldn't believe that both guys would be standing 15 feet apart with their hands on their knees one minute into the second round, looking at each other with a tacit understanding that they were taking a time-out. Sometimes, both guys should get a loss.

This does not bode well for the rest of the season.

am i the only one who thinks kimbo's boxing is better than roys? yeah, i know all about roy's 'other' abilities as a fighter. but to me, kimbo's takedown defense could prevent roy from ending this fight on the ground with those 'other' abilities. and i think if this fight stays on the feet, then kimbo has a legit chance to beat him.

maybe its just me.

personally i think roy is a bit cocky and could use kimbo's fist to his face as a humbling mechanism.

Roy Nelson is like an over weight Chuck Liddell.
K.E.G.- September 24, 2009 at 5:54 am
I had a sinking feeling this season was going to go down like this. MMA is alot like (real) wrestling as far as the action in the weight classes go, and most HW a notoriously boring as shit. Once you get out of the upper levels of the division it's a short fall to mediocre talent. I think big Roy will beat Kimbo but it will likely be the best fight of the season so far.
Viva Hate- September 24, 2009 at 5:33 am
Last nights figth was an absolute joke, both those guys should have been thrown off for ever putting on a performance like that, they want to be UFC fighters and they did not even make it through the first round with out being gassed. The only positive that could come out of that fight is we finally found 2 people with worse cardio than Mark Coleman.

Anyone else have a feeling that next week get to see Rampage mess up a door after Kimbo loses?
IRISHLOBO- September 24, 2009 at 5:05 am
Last night's fight was actually a preview for "TUF 11: Team Starnes v. Team Starnes"
Frank Mur- September 24, 2009 at 5:00 am
I've gotta give Kimbo at least a 50/50 shot on Big Country.
Zee German- September 24, 2009 at 12:32 am
Wow, Ben, looking good. But who wouldn't compared to Roy (just kidding, Roy is a stud).

I'm trying this on so bear with me, but Roy Nelson's new nickname....Corn Fed-or.

Eh? Eh?
MGalactic- September 23, 2009 at 11:48 pm
If you watch the first few jab exchanges, Roy doesn't follow up with a straight or a hook. That's bad boxing. Kimbo will beat him up if it stays on the feet.
