I see NElson getting tagged quick and then gassing before getting tagged for the KO.

this seems weird for dana to say this a week before kimbo fights .. but i guess he wants more people to tune in and fight .. i think nelson wins, but the way he has been going on, on the show, hopefully the slice KO's him ... i will be watching for sure ...

dana said multiple times the only way kimbo will ever fight in the UFC is if he goes to TUF and wins the entire show. i guess his tune changed as soon as he saw the ratings spike. he says ratings didn't influence it but they did

Probably seeing how hard he's working and how game a fighter he is has influenced this statement to. With Dana it seems that hard work and no quit attitude go a long way.

true, but i still think alot was due to the ratings spike. there are probably other guys on the show who are just as hard working (if not more hard working than kimbo) but dana would never make the same statements about them because they don't have the ratings power that kimbo has.

I agree. If Kimbo upsets Roy then the ratings will go off the chart.
My prediction: Roy wins but Kimbo has an AWESOME showing against him.

I'm pretty sure Dana only said that the only way Kimbo would get to the UFC was through the TUF house. I don't remember seeing where he had to win it all. Anyone have a direct quote?

Dana said "I've always said the only way Kimbo Slice will ever be in the UFC is if he goes through the ultimate fighter". He did not say anything about winning the show, or winning on the show.
