Tonight is something we have all been waiting for: the conclusion of this season of TUF, the end of the Kimbo weekly drama (catch the show this week to see Kimbo's return), and the constant bickering between Rampage and Rashad.
While, we are hoping the fights will be better tonight, we at least get more real UFC fighters on the card, and less TUF types.
Here are a few clips and my thoughts...
Marcus “Big Baby/ The Darkness” Jones vs. Matt “Meat Head” Mitrione
This will be the first bout of the TV card and one that many want to see. Meat Head aggravated people all season and most will be rooting against him in this fight. Davis became the favorite of the show as his size, strength, and huge teddy bear appeal warmed the hearts of his viewers (and plants).
Prediction: Both of these guys are very green, Meat Head could very well KO Jones. Both are former football players, and at some point this one will go to the ground, when it does Jones will dominate.
Jones by submission
Kimbo Slice vs. Houston Alexander:
TUF 10 will forever be known as the season of Kimbo. Believe it or not, a lot of the hardcore MMA fans started coming around and rooting for Kimbo, but the constant pressure of Kimbo down your throat, and him not stepping up to fight changed most of their minds. Houston on the other hand is the UFC’s version of Kimbo…No ground game, hated on by many… This could actually be a decent fight.
Kimbo has never fought anyone that can bang like Houston. When Kimbo denied the chance to fight for the contract it made me question his motives. If he doesn’t want this, and is pressured by Alexander, then he may fold. That is what I expect! Houston by TKO! If Houston does not win, expect the UFC to hand him his walking papers.
