Kimbo Slice Loses to Roy Nelson

Kimbo Slice vs Roy Nelson results:

Kimbo Slice lost to Roy Nelson in the 2nd round by TKO (referee stoppage) in tonight's episode of the ultimate fighter heavyweights.

It was a pretty good fight with both fighters getting in some good shots, especially Kimbo, but the much more experienced Roy Nelson's ground game was too much for Slice to handle and he eventually got the better of him.

To be honest, I didn't expect Kimbo to win this fight since Roy Nelson has a lot of MMA experience and is a former IFL champion. However, even in losing Slice showed that he has definitely improved his MMA fighting ability and will be a force in the UFC some time the near future.

It was the most anticipated fight in the ultimate fighter history and it did not disappoint, even though it wasn't exactly a super exciting fight.

It's very apparent that Kimbo Slice still needs to drastically improve his ground game but I think you have to give him props for fighting so well against a much more experienced and extremely tough opponent.

He's also a great guy even when he loses!
