A long-rumored fight between Kimbo Slice and Houston Alexander may be in the works for The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on December 5 in Las Vegas, with MMAjunkie reporting Thursday that Alexander will soon apply to fight in Nevada and could square off with the Slice at the Spike TV-televised event.
Alexander (9-4), a loser of three-straight UFC fights, returns to the Octagon after getting back on track outside the promotion with a knockout of one-time UFC fighter Sherman Pendergarst in September. Prior to his three-fight skid, “The Assassin” scored back-to-back knockouts of Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara to begin his UFC career.
Slice (3-1), a cast member on TUF 10, suffered a second-round TKO to Roy Nelson in the season’s opening round, but will make his official UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale.
With the fight still unannounced, it is not yet known whether Slice will move down to 205 for the contest or whether Alexander, who has competed exclusively at light heavyweight in the UFC, will move up to heavyweight for the matchup.
The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale also features Jon Jones vs. Matt Hamill and Frankie Edgar vs. Kurt Pellegrino, as well as the finals of the season’s heavyweight tournament.
