Report: Kimbo Slice and Houston Alexander to Meet At 215lbs Catchweight for "The Ultimate Fighter" 10 Finale

Houston Alexander vs Kimbo SlicePromoted to the front page from the FanPosts by Luke Thomas.

Rumors have been swirling for the past month or so that TUF Season Ten poster-boy Kimbo Slice would make his official UFC debut against knockout artist Houston Alexander in December.  Various reports had the fight taking place at UFC 107 in Memphis, or at the TUF 10 Finale in Las Vegas, and no one was quite sure whether Houston would move up to heavyweight for the first time in the UFC, or if Kimbo would make his first-ever weight cut down to 205, Houston's normal fighting weight. 

Now, a report from Matt Erickson at the Northwest Indiana Times indicates that the bout will go down on December 5th at the Finale show, and the two sluggers will meet at a catchweight of 215 pounds:

The Times has learned from a source close to the Alexander camp that the fight has indeed been agreed to and that it will be contested at a special heavyweight catch weight of 215 pounds on "The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale" on Dec. 5 at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas.

According to the source, the fight was originally going to take place at light heavyweight. But Ferguson, the source said, is not able to make the drop to 205 pounds, and the two fighters agreed to the bout at 215 pounds. Ferguson weighed in at 230 pounds for his fight with Nelson on the show, which was filmed over the summer. And on a media conference call two days before that episode aired, he said he was then just short of 235 pounds.

It will be very interesting to see how the weight cut affects Kimbo's performance, and how Houston will fare against an opponent who can probably match his knockout power.
