Rampage Jackson continues to show why he is the funniest character in MMA. His clip talking about the size of Roy Neson’s belly is classic.

Kimbo Slice weighs in at 230

Roy Nelson weighs in at 264

It was almost surreal to see come out without the fanfare that accompanied him during his run on CBS for Elite XC.

You can even hear the tension in Dana White’s voice as he announces the rules for this 2 round fight.

Big surprise to everyone was to see the first significant strike to land by either fighter was a low kick by Kimbo Slice.

For the first time this season, Rampage Jackson was actually coaching a fighter, giving Kimbo details about what he needed to do.

In a repeat of his match with James Thompson, the referee (Herb Dean) refused to stop the match even though Kimbo Slice was being hit repeatedly without being able to intelligently defend himself while being caught in a crucifix position. Roy Nelson was taped earlier saying that he would try to do exactly that. Kimbo was saved by the bell, and a bad decision by the referee to get into round 2.

Roy Nelson weathered a few good shots from Kimbo Slice, but got Slice back on the ground and again into the same crucifix position. This time he got it done earlier in the round and got the victory by stoppage.

Dana White comes away from this fight more impressed by Kimbo Slice than by Roy Nelson, who he felt only did enough to win and not get hit.
