Rumors have been running wild for weeks that Kimbo Slice will be fighting Houston Alexander sometime in December, possibility at the TUF 10 Finale on Dec. 5 from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV. Here’s some more proof that this fight is not a myth.

  • Houston Alexander announced on his Nebraska Radio show (Power 106, Sunday Night Raw), the that a fight between the two is in the works, but has since kept tight lipped.
  • Kimbo Tweeted,
    His first mistake was saying “I Accept”
  • Houston Alexander is on the schedule for re-license by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) at the Nov. 4th meeting.
  • No “Will Kimbo get a second chance” commercials on Wednesdays TUF.

Does Kimbo Slice take on Houston Alexander at the TUF 10 Finale on Dec. 4th? I think theirs a high probability that these two fighter will meet by the end of the year.

Then the big question is at what weight: light heavyweight, heavyweight or a catch weight? I know Kimbo is not the biggest heavyweight, but will he be able to cut down to 205lbs?
