Alright, lets put this one on the map. Tonight on MMAscraps Radio, Demico Rogers stated that Kimbo Slice walks around at about 223 and that members of the house have been suggesting he should cut to 205 and compete in the (ridunkulously staked) light heavyweight division. If you’ve been following the blitzkrieg of Kimbo Slice news that has been floating around the net, then this should come as no surprise. So if we threw all the Kimbo Slice/Houston Alexander stuff in a blender, smacked it on and then poured the mixture through a strainer, this is what we absolutely know…
Houston Alexander is coming back to the UFC in December: Houston grabbed three consecutive losses in the UFC after two very impressive first round KO victories over Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara. The UFC didn’t want to drop him so in 2008, they allowed Houston to fight on other regional cards so he could get a couple of wins under his belt. Last month, Alexander scored an impressive win over Sherman Pendergarst at Adrenaline IV. UFC was so impressed with his win that they already have him slated for a December return in the octagon.
Kimbo Slice is making his UFC debut in December: Whether it’s for UFC 107 or The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, Kimbo Slice will be making his UFC debut by the end of the year. Apparently when 3 out of the 4 most watched MMA events in history belong to a dude that used to fight in the parking lots of boatyards, you pretty much have to give the guy another shot(s). Dude is the biggest draw in MMA and he’s confirmed that he will make his UFC debut in December.
Realistically, Kimbo Slice doesn’t have to cut any weight. Houston Alexander just fought a few weeks ago as a heavyweight so it’s likely that he will maintain his current weight when he enters the octagon in December. Houston Alexander was the Kimbo Slice before Kimbo Slice was even Kimbo Slice. Both guys have incredibly dense hands and we all know that the only way it’s going to the ground is if someone takes an unexpected mat nap via rght hand hydrogen bomb. Until the UFC confirms the rumors then they’re just going to float around the net like some unwanted house guest that eats all your Coco Pops and fronts like he vacums but he actually just looks through your browser history whenever you’re at work. Damnit.
