The world’s most famous street fighter made his Octagon debut against one-time UFC phenom Houston Alexander. His MMA career was off to a great start as he headlined the first ever U.S. network live MMA broadcast on CBS for EliteXC. But it all came crashing down a year ago on the second CBS EliteXC show when Seth Petruzelli knocked him out in 0:14.
Then he accepted the UFC’s offer to participate in The Ultimate Fighter reality show where he brought the show its biggest season ever. He also lost his only fight on the series to Roy Nelson in the highest rated episode in the show’s history. Despite repeated teases for the remainder of the season, Kimbo declined an opportunity for a second fight on the show.
Tonight he had his third chance to make a legitimate professional MMA fighter out of himself.
