It’s sure to be a ratings bonanza for the UFC with the finale of this season of The Ultimate Fighter on Dec. 5th in Las Vegas. According to MMAJunkie.com, Kimbo Slice and Houston “The Assassin” Alexander will square off at the event, presumably at a catchweight of 215 pounds.
TUF 10 saw it’s highest ratings ever when Slice took on former IFL champion Roy Nelson during this season’s third episode. UFC officials are hoping to top those numbers for the finale event.
Both fighters have similar fighting styles, as both are well known for their strong standup and less than stellar ground game. Both fighters also have something to prove, as Slice is seeking a win in his first UFC appearance, and it’s been over 2 years since Alexander last celebrated a victory in the UFC.
