New York, NY, December 3, 2009 – Kimbo Slice has already established himself as a worldwide fight game sensation; now he will attempt to prove himself in the Octagon when he battles fellow knockout artist Houston Alexander in his first official UFC fight, live on Spike TV on Saturday, December 5 at 9:00pm. The three-round bout (at a catchweight of 215 lbs.) will be part of “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” finale fight card emanating from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV. Slice, the wildly popular mixed martial arts heavyweight, is a member of the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights.”

Slice, with a professional record of 3-1, is a former YouTube sensation who gained prominence fighting in his hometown of Miami. As a member of “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights,” Slice lost his first match on the show to finalist Roy Nelson, but with the improved skills he learned on the show, as well as a full training camp once filming ended, expect to see a new and improved fighter in the Octagon against Omaha native Houston Alexander.

Alexander became an overnight mixed martial arts star with a shocking TKO of Keith Jardine less than a minute into their bout at UFC 71 in May, 2007. He followed that victory with a first round TKO of Alessio Sakara at UFC 75 four months later. On December 5, Alexander hopes to begin another UFC winning streak by defeating Slice.
