Rashad Evans Discusses Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson: I Wanted Roy to KO Kimbo
(mma.fanhouse.com)
The Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson fight that will air Wednesday night on Spike TV was set up by former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, Nelson's coach this season on The Ultimate Fighter. And Evans said in an interview with FanHouse that he set up that fight for one reason: He wanted to see Kimbo get knocked out, and he thought Nelson was the man to do it. That wasn't intended as a slight toward Kimbo, whom Evans says he likes. It was intended as a slight toward Rampage Jackson, Evans' coaching rival, whom Evans says he desperately wanted to beat on the show -- just as he desperately wanted to beat him in the Octagon before Jackson walked away from the UFC to pursue an acting career. Jackson made Kimbo his first choice when the coaches picked their teams, and Evans said he thought Nelson was just the man to whip Jackson's first-round draft pick.

Kimbo Slice denies he declined rematch with Petruzelli, discusses "TUF" fight with Nelson
(mmajunkie.com)
For anyone expecting an explosive and over-the-top Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson on today's media call to promote this week's new episode of "The Ultimate Fighter 10," the fighter and cast member likely disappointed. Ferguson, whose fight with Roy Nelson highlights episode three of "TUF 10" on Wednesday night (10 p.m. ET/PT, Spike TV), expertly handled the swarm of questions and came across quite pleasant, if not charming, during the one-hour media session. His tone changed, though, once he was asked about Seth Petruzelli's recent comments that Ferguson turned down multiple opportunities for the fighters to rematch.

"TUF 10" cast member Jon Madsen's road to UFC already crossed Brock Lesnar
(mmajunkie.com)
Jon Madsen's first meeting with Brock Lesnar displayed the elements that would later make him one of the most intriguing up-and-coming heavyweights in mixed-martial-arts. Even though they were only in high school. Madsen was a freshman at Dolan High School in South Dakota, which was separated by about 45 minutes from Lesnar's town. That made the heavyweight wrestlers competitors in a high school event, and Lesnar, two years older, beat Madsen.

Sadollah’s Post-TUF journey restarts at UFC 101

Amir Sadollah swept onto the UFC scene in 2008, light on experience but heavy on skills, talent and heart. In the process, he became the middleweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter’s seventh season, a charismatic and humble Surgical Technician out of Virginia who quickly gained a legion of fans with his feel-good Cinderella run. Then he was gone.

Kimbo Slice, Roy Nelson and Wes Sims: Good Guys and Bad Guys on TUF 10
(bloodyelbow.com)
For the first time since the lightweights of season five, I'm really looking forward to the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. Part of it is the roster of fighters -- I can't help being intrigued by Kimbo Slice, but I'm more interested in the mix of established veterans and up and coming talent they've put together. I must admit the prospect of seeing several former pro and college football players ads to the excitement.

Kimbo Slice: ‘I can’t just come with one dimension; I’ll get smashed’
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
As the mixed martial arts community prepares itself for the most anticipated season of the highly successful Ultimate Fighter series, much of the attention has been centered around one man. The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights is set to begin airing on September 16 and will feature a bearded brawler that goes by the name of Kevin Ferguson, more commonly known as Kimbo Slice. Eager to redeem himself in the fight game following his fourteen second embarrassment at the hands of Seth Petruzelli in October of 2008, Kimbo threw the masses for a curve ball when it was recently announced that he would be part of the upcoming heavyweight TUF cast Personally the more I hear about Kimbo post Elite XC especially recently the more respect I have gained for him...I wish him the best of luck

Ultimate Fighter 10 Cast: Kimbo Slice Is the Star, Watch James McSweeney

The UFC has officially released the names of the 16 heavyweights who will participate in Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, and, of course, Kimbo Slice is the star. But the guy I'm most curious about is James McSweeney. McSweeney, in case you haven't heard of him, is a former professional kickboxer who trains with Greg Jackson at one of the world's best MMA gyms.

(Spoiler?? not really)Size Matters: The Ultimate Fighter Season Ten Roll Call
(fiveouncesofpain.com)
We are currently three weeks deep into the taping of the upcoming tenth season of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter. This season is set to feature nothing but the big boys as sixteen larger than life warriors will be duking it out to determine the king of the heavyweight Ultimate Fighter crop. The Ultimate Fighter: The Heavyweights could already be considered the most highly anticipated show of the series largely in part of the recent announcement that none other than Kevin Ferguson, aka Kimbo Slice was expected to enter the shark tank. The timing couldn’t be any better. I don’t think that I’m alone in saying that the most recent season of the show was the most lackluster of the series to date. Never have I been as unengaged with a season of TUF before season nine. The most successful television show in mixed martial arts needed a drastic change, or a makeover in a sense. It needed something, and it looks like it has found its answer in the form of sixteen mammoth sized brawlers willing to put their bodies on the line in the pursuit of their dream to become a UFC heavyweight. A full list of the men expected to appear on the tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter was recently released by the popular U.K. newspaper, The Sun. Among them are four former professional football players, a portly wrecking machine, a thugged out Internet sensation, UFC veterans and MMA rookies alike, The Ultimate Fighter: The Heavyweights is sure to have quite the variety of personalities and schools of thought

Richie Whitson Final TUF 9 Q&A
(punchdrunkgamer.com)

8. After watching all of the episodes was there anything of note that didn’t get shown on TV? Richie Whitson – Yes, after me and Jason Pierce got into the argument that you saw on TV. Santino and I were roommates in the house and Pierce decided to put a sign on our door that said “Gingers Only, Queers Only, Please Knock”. So Santino, Frank, Cameron, Demarques, Mark and I sat around thinking of some way to get even with Pierce. We made stick figure drawings with each of the British team members and on each one of the pictures was a picture of Pierce on his knees &^%#$@ &**&. Then we made one more picture with Bisping and the rest of the British coaches doing all kinds of things to defile Pierce. The next morning we got up at like 5 a.m. and put all of the pictures up on the walls of the living room. I went back to sleep and was woke up by the loud laughing of the U.K. team.

UFC and Spike TV agree to renew "The Ultimate Fighter" contract through 14th season
(mmajunkie.com)
As a successful ninth season of "The Ultimate Fighter" winds down – and a highly anticipated 10th season begins filming – the UFC and Spike TV have extended their agreement through a 14th season of the hit reality TV series. UFC President Dana White announced the new deal at a Q&A session with UFC Fight Club members today at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, site of Saturday's UFC 99. The existing deal, announced in October 2007, called for 12 seasons of the show. "We actually just did an extension with [Spike TV]," White said. "We're going to be doing through (season) 14, two seasons a year. "They're good partners. We work really well together, and they let me do what I do." Prior to the extension, Spike TV was expected to air one season of "The Ultimate Fighter" in 2010 and another in 2011. The reality show was expected to be augmented by a newly developed fight series, which would include live bouts. Immediate attempts by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) to reach Spike TV officials for the current status of the potential new series were unsuccessful. In addition to the announcement of two additional seasons of "The Ultimate Fighter," White said he believed the show would follow up on the success of the ninth season with another "U.S. vs. U.K." theme. "I don't know how many people here watched this season, but this season was awesome," White said. "The fights were great. It was a good show, and it worked out well.
