    Ultimate Fighter 10


    I dont know if anyone has heard, but several news sources are reporting that season 10 (all heavyweights) will have some good prospects and the addition of none other than Kimbo Slice.

    Dana White has said that for Kimbo to be in the UFC he would have to work his way up, imagine this guy in the house? Also, imagine the ratings if he is on Team Rampage?

    Yeah Kimbo is in, he will be a different person to "bird" on youtube.

    He was a pornstars bodyguard who is now world wide famous, that man is either a genius or very lucky.

    You wont see him throwing down on the show.

    hahaha yeah i heard this jsut read it before this site. ****s crazy. i think he will win his first and lose his second. do you think they will fight to come on the show? i dont think there are enough legit guys to fight or they get hurt easier so i bet they got 16. also if he gets a contract weather he wins or not i want tito ortiz to fight him because hes good at fighting big beasts hahaha. i freakin hate tito but kimbo is a joke. kimbo was looking for a big pay day and he might embarress himself.

    They wont be fighting to get on the show and it will be all heavyweights , as opposed to two weight classes in the house . Unless Slice has improved DRASTICALLY since his loss to Seth "The Smoothie Stand Owner" Petruzelli , then I have to agree with him getting KTFO . However I also have to give props to Kimbo himself . He never tried to hype himself as being great , just as trying to make some money by fighting whoever whenever . All the bullsh!t hype came from Jared Shaw and associates and the youtubemorons who think backyard brawling equates into a legit MMA contender(same morons who like watching girls eat poo) . He knows he has been overrated since day one but still walks into a house where he will most likely get torn to shreds ? I give respect where respect is due .

    Add in the fact he still, rightfully or wrongfully, can command a big paycheck but instead has decided to fight for no money whatsoever, and the guy has definitely earned some measure of respect - not as a fighter, but as a person. I feel he simply has too little talent to challenge, but I will reserve full judgment until I see!

    I think it will be interesting. For all we know, Slice might respond very well to being coached and pick up some legitimate skills.

    Dana is going to look to crush him, surely be cant be built after being demolished by a jab from a UFC-cut fighter?

    I agree. I respect the fact he is doing this for the right reasons. He wants to fight. The promotional side of it was not his doing.

    I have heard some of the rumored participants and have to say, some of the guys are fairly legit. I will say this, Slice's first fight will have him coming out like a bull in a china shop, getting taken down and sub'd, end of story

    I think the seasons going to be effing great. Rampage has the funniest and most charismatic personality in the UFC, imo, there's the drama between Page and Rashad and then the Slice factor.

    Most people in Slice's position would have grown too big of an ego (after all that money & popularity) to do something like TUF. I think it shows Kimbo would like to earn the right to be respected as an MMA'ist. Whether he will earn that respect or not is up in the air, but all these elements make this a season I'll actually watch.

    Roy has great bjj, Wes Sims is also on the show and he has actually tapped Daniel Gracie. There is also 4 ex-NFL players , cagepotato had an article. I hope Kimbo doesnt end up on Rampage's team because Rampage doesnt like to train and wont teach him anything. Going to be a great season regardless, you gotta admit it you wanna see "FERG" in action again

    You have it backwards on the Sims issue: Gracie tapped him with a beauty RNC.

    subjective technicality.

    Just kidding. The interview I saw on Rampage's POV on Rashad was a pre-Lyoto defeat Rashad. I wonder if any of Rashad's cockiness has diminished since "the Lyoto incident."

    For some reason, I doubt it. I could see it happening only if Machida had picked him apart and ground him for five grueling rounds, and/or if he sustained a ridiculous amount of damage ala The Crow v., Franklin. Like a blowout basketball game of 1145-80, I assume Rashad chalked the loss up as a wash, and will go back to being arrogant in no time. IMO, it seems fighters usually internalize the brutal wars a bit more than KOs, as KOs can come at any time.

    Well, unless you are Arlovski, and then after subsequent KOs you go home and cry, making sure you don't brush your chin too hard with Kleenex.

    THE CAST for season ten of The Ultimate Fighter has leaked - and SunSport can reveal who will pit their wits against Kimbo Slice.

    With the ninth instalment of the show ending on Saturday at the TUF 9 Finale, mixed martial arts fans are already eager to find out which men will make up the roster for the next series.

    We understand that the full list of the 16 heavyweights who will compete for a six-figure contract with the UFC will be:

    KIMBO SLICE: The YouTube phenomenon and former Elite XC headliner will be the main attraction in the new season. UFC president Dana White has continually derided the 35-year-old, claiming "he would get killed in the UFC". It will be interesting to see if he is proved right.

    ROY NELSON: Boasting a 13-4 MMA record, the 32-year-old is a former Elite XC fighter who is perhaps best known for being knocked out by Andrei Arlovski last October.

    WES SIMS: Formerly on the UFC roster, the 29-year-old was cut after just one year in the promotion in 2004 after losing three successive fights to Frank Mir (twice) and Mike Kyle.

    MARCUS JONES: Former NFL defensive end for Tampa Bay Buccaneers between 1996 and 2002. Occasional guest on the popular American radio show Bubba the Love Sponge. Trained in MMA for just over two years.

    MATT MITRIONE: Another ex-NFL player, debuted as a rookie in 2002 for Minnesota Vikings. Very little MMA experience but trains with highly-regarded UFC heavyweight Jake O'Brien.

    WES SHIVERS: NFL veteran and a late call-up to replace fellow pro-footballer Rex Richards. Very confident of winning the whole thing. Speaking last year, he bragged: "The only reason I have six fights now is because we have trouble finding opponents. One fight in particular, I had four opponents back out on me in a two-week period of time."

    JIM YORK: Nicknamed "Big", York shares one thing in common with Kimbo - he too has beaten Britain's James Thompson. The 33-year-old New Zealander emerged victorious from their Sengoku 7 clash after KO'ing the Englishman in the opening round of their bout in March.

    JUSTIN WREN: At 22 years old, The Viking is the youngest contestant in the new series. He has a 6-1 MMA record and trains with UFC star Travis Lutter's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team.

    MIKE WESSEL: The Ohio native has already fought in the UFC, losing to Antoni Hardonk via TKO at UFC 92 in the second round. However, it should be noted that Wessel only took that fight on a week's notice, and UFC president Dana White was impressed enough to offer him a four-fight deal and place on season ten of TUF for his efforts.

    SCOTT JUNK: Another fighter with previous UFC experience. The 30-year-old lost via heel hook in the opening round of his UFC 72 bout against Hungarian Christian Wellisch in September 2007.

    ZAK JENSEN: Boasts a 7-3 MMA record and is noted for his strong wrestling ability. Has suffered defeats to fellow TUF alumni Brad Imes and Mike Whitehead.

    DARRILL SCHOONOVER: An impressive 10-0 MMA record sets the big Texan apart from the rest of the cast. The 23-year-old is an early favourite to win the series and UFC contract.

    BRENDAN SCHAUB: Has fought in MMA for over two years but little is known about his ability. A 4-0 record suggests he has raw skills but his lack of experience could count against him.

    JON MADSEN: Part of legendary UFC welterweight Matt Hughes' stable but only has one MMA fight to his name - a KO win over Cody Griffen earlier this month.

    TOM BLACKLEDGE: British MMA enthusiasts may already be familiar with Blackledge - he fights out of the Wolfslair in Widnes. He will be hoping to repeat the success of teammate Michael Bisping by winning TUF, but his 8-6 record suggests the odds may be against him.

    ABE WAGNER: Big Nebraskan holds a 6-2 professional MMA record and could be the surprise package of this season.

    Nelson has to be the favorite. He is the most experienced by far. And if he puts a punch anywhere near Kimbos questionable chin the fights over.

    I don't know if they want their ratings monster Kimbo fighting so early. Because if he loses, alot of Kimbo fans won't watch anymore.
    I am interested in the interaction between him and Rampage or Rashad. Oh the hijinx...

    As much as I despise Dana, I doubt any shenanigans in terms of delaying Kimbo's matches are going to occur. I would be surprised if he fought any later than first or second. This all depends on how they setup fight selections and so forth.
