Kevin Ferguson, aka Kimbo Slice, has proven that he belongs inside of the Octagon once and for all as the former Youtube brawler managed to come out on top of a catchweight showdown between himself and the heavy handed Houston Alexander .
The pair threw down during this evening’s The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale that took place from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
In what came as a huge shock to many, the duo of knockout artist’s somehow managed to got the distance in a bout most expected to last no longer than a minute or two.
Houston started off extremely tentative and looked to pepper Kimbo with leg kicks for the bulk of the first round while Slice charted forward. Kimbo turned it up a notch in the second going forward, imposing his will on Alexander with a series of slams and punches, even managing to take the more experienced brawler’s back for a duration of time looking to sink a rear-naked choke.
It was an impressive performance for Kimbo. A performance the judges unanimously saw in his favor with two scores of 29-28, and one score of 30-27.
