Justin Wren TUF 10 blog: Kimbo Slice vs. Big Country

This episode, in my opinion, was a lot better than the last one. The buildup, suspense, and the fight were better than the last. I enjoyed seeing more of the guys training up to the fight… but that is me, a fighter, and I like more of that than any of the drama…haha.

Way to go “Big Country” bringing Team Rashad to 3-0! Going into this fight I believe every one of our team members and coaches saw it playing out the very way it did. The fight was pretty exciting because Kimbo landed some great shots and Roy did what he had to do to win the fight… It could have been a little more exciting if Roy would have landed some better shots though.

The episode starts with some inner reflections from “Kimbo”, as he explains that the only way to put to rest the character of “Kimbo Slice” will be by shaving off his beard. “Kimbo” goes on to explain his personal transformation since he has had time to think while on the show.

“I always feel like I would fight anybody, because everybody was the enemy, enemy, enemy, the enemy,” said Ferguson, “I really found the time to find out who the enemy was… the enemy was the inner-me.”
