Kimbo Slice built his reputation on the web with his infamous YouTube street fight videos. As he faced huge dudes in the streets of Miami, Kimbo had the vicious look with the shredded body and the beard. Guys looked like they soiled themselves even before throwing a punch. Does Kimbo still have that aura of intimidation?

This is such a wierd fight for me. They are like mirror images of one another. They are both absolutely ripped. Just about every pound is solid muscle. They are both huge punchers, and they both have weak chins IMO. Not to mention they are both getting somewhat up there in the age department, and they both need to win this fight.

I've got Houston by KO in under 3 minutes.

I was really torn on who to pick in this one because they both have a punchers chance, but I think Houston needs this so bad, and with Kimbo having issues cutting weight I think he's ripe for the picking.

I wouldn't be shocked if Kimbo KO'd Houston either. He could easily get the best of an exchange and buckle Houston.

im pickin houston, but i think these guys are very alike in there style. Both like to get in your face and throw, so i would bet that this doesnt make it out of round 1.

Everything about them being the same is true, but at least houston can throw some devastating kness. in my mind this gives him the advantage. Houston KO 1st rnd

The knees are the only reason I'm leaning towards Houston. If I could get a look at what Kimbo's hands look like right now I might lean his way. He looked fast at the weigh-ins but he looked tired as well. I think this will be the most watched fight in UFC history.

I still haven't seen any evidence that kimbo is a huge puncher. He couldn't knock out James Thompson with totally uncontested shots, and Thompson is KNOWN for his weak chin.

We should all vote for Kimbo to win and get built up to add impetus to the creation of a cruiserweight division at 220 or 225


anyways Alexander by legkick, he's stopped people before that way and Kimbos knees are shot

Houston got more tools based on what we've seen.

Well they're both punchers, I guess houston uses knees. Other then that it's pretty much no ground game with suspect chins.
