Would rather have Kimbo fight someone from the show, but prolly trying to get good ratings.

In the end I hope Kimbo gets KO'ed and Houston comes out like he did in his first fights guns blazing.

I like this instead of making more Divisions I would like to see more catchweight fights in the HW bracket.

What if Kimbo takes Alexander to the mat and submits him?

I actually like this fight. Kimbo gets a lot of crap that he doesn't deserve IMO. The guy is humble and dedicated, and he seems to learn really quickly.

I would like to see him pull out the victory here, but I think Houston probably KOs him. Seeing these two roll would be hilarious lol.

Sounds like fireworks to me boys!!!! Kimbo is training at ATT and should be improving. This fight has absolutley no chance of going to the ground. Houston is going to end up sucking dust off the Harley logo early in the 1st! His head movement is still non-existant, and forget about footwork. I just cant believe they are putting it on the Finale. thoght for sure they would put Kimbo on a PPV soley for the PPV buy pull? Maybe they are trying to build him up?

hmm...although i really like kimbo and he has shown him self to be likable and a good guy, he should be fighting someone from the show like they have done on every other TUF.. dana white said hell treat him teh same etc...but obviously hes not.. i know its about money and ratings, but dana white is lying again

Even though I've been gaining more respect for Kimbo during the shows, I can't see him winning. They are mirror images of each other, with Houston having more power, Muay Thai and Boxing background as opposed to just Boxing. You have to give it to Houston round 1 KO.

Can't believe they didn't stick this on the PPV instead.

Not complaining though.
