"Former International Fight League heavyweight champion Roy Nelson “called his shot” when he ousted Internet street-fighting legend Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson on the latest episode of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 10. Consider it his ode to the Sultan of Swat.

“I called it the night before,” Nelson said during a Thursday teleconference. “I just wanted to point out to the guys that this was how I was going to win. And guess what? That’s how I won. I did a Babe Ruth. I hit my home run.”

Pegged as the Season 10 favorite by many pundits, Nelson strapped Slice in a crucifix and finished him with strikes on the ground in the second round of their heavyweight scrap, which aired to record ratings on Spike TV. According to preliminary figures, the episode drew 5.3 million viewers and peaked with 6.1 million during the actual fight. "

I don't think so, Roy. I think the pitcher pitched the ball, you caught it with a glove and walked it to the outfield and tossed it over the fence, granny style.

Bunt to the pitcher, thrown out very easily. Nice that he's setting the bar high. What would a win over, let's say Al Turk for arguments sake, would that be winning the batting title? A no hitter? Perfect game?

My opinions of Roy and Kimbo as men have reversed.

I can't stop saying how much I dislike this guy. You'd think he just won the heavyweight title.

Yeah I wasnt overly impressed with Roy. He did call his shot so to speak. He will needs a bit more to take out the likes of Mcsweeny or Wes sims
