TUF 10 Finale conference call audio & quotes

TUF 10 Finale takes place at the Palms in Las Vegas on Saturday, Dec. 5, and airs on Spike TV at 9PM ET/PT.

ProMMA.info participated in today’s The Ultimate Fighter season 10: Heavyweights Finale conference call featuring finalists Roy Nelson and Brendan Schaub, along with Kimbo Slice and Houston Alexander, who will also be fighting on the card.

Whether it be from the weight cut or something else, Kimbo seemed a bit agitated with the many of the questions and did not seem to want to be on the call, especially at first. Comparatively, the other fighters seemed in good spirits.

One of the call’s highlights was when Kimbo was asked if there was any fighter he could model himself after, who would it be. Kimbo said, “I’m a grown man. I can’t say nothing like that. All the fighters who are good.” It was a funny moment that had his opponent laughing. You can hear this and all of the fighters’ comments on the audio below. Also, there are some notable quotes after the jump.

Brendan Schaub to face Roy Nelson in TUF 10 Finale this Saturday night on Spike TV – fight card now complete

Brendan Schaub vs. Roy Nelson will fight to determine who wins a six-figure contract with the UFC.

Well, that’s it folks. The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights final episode, a two-hour special, aired Wednesday night on Spike TV. They teased us with a possible Kimbo Slice come back until the very end, but he did not fight again after losing to Roy Nelson earlier in the season.

The first fight of the night was Matt Mitrione vs. James McSweeney. Mitrione looked tough on his feet but McSweeney choked him out with a guillotine, and advanced to the sem-finals.

Next up was Marcus Jones vs. Darrel Schoonover. Most people considered Schoonover a serious threat coming into this fight. Evidently, Jones was not one of them. He took Schoonover down early, there was a scramble, and Jones ends up knocking Schoonover out from inside his guard. It was a big win for the NFL veteran.

“The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights”- episode 11 & 12 recap

Well, this is it. Two hours and four fights and we will know who is the newest Ultimate Fighter. We have been teased with the possible return of “Kimbo” all season since his elimination, and will find out tonight if it was a ratings ploy, or if he truly will be back in contention for the title.

The episode starts with Dana White addressing the guys and explaining the possibility of Mitrione maybe not being able to go. Dana calls in “Kimbo” to see his mindset on possibly fighting again, and gives his thoughts on “Kimbo’s” knee injury.

Dana informs viewers that “Kimbo” is suffering from arthritis, but cannot believe that “Kimbo” is turning down a shot for a fight with McSweeney. “Kimbo” explains that he is using his brains instead of his brawn in this decision to not go, and that he will fight another day.

Justin Wren vs. Jon Madsen at TUF 10 Finale

Two of TUF 10's best wrestlers will meet at the Finale.

According to our friends over at Around the Octagon, TUF 10 quarter-finalists Justin “The Viking” Wren and Jon Madsen will face each other at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on Dec. 5 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. The event will air free on Spike TV at 9PM ET/PT.

Wren, who has been chronicling his TUF 10 experience through a weekly blog here at ProMMA.info, faced UFC heavyweight veteran Wes Sims in his first fight on the show. Wren took Sims down easily and early in the bout, locked on a submission, and put the big man to sleep via arm triangle.

In his quarter-final fight, Wren faced another veteran, Roy “Big Country” Nelson. Wren was aggressive and pushed the pace in the first round. However, he seemed to gas and take more shots in the second, and the judges awarded Nelson the unanimous decision.

Episode 10: Showtime Schaub

The episode starts out of course with Matt “The Rat” Mitrione being a head case again. With his facial expressions and his outlandish stories he tried to play mind games with us, or he was trying to come up with an excuse of why he couldn’t fight James McSweeney. My striking coach now at Grudge Training Center in Denver, Colorado was severely offended…

Coach Trevor Wittman has been around Professional boxers for over 10 years, and he is one of the BEST trainers around, period. Matt was milking everything, and the doctors said he didn’t have a concussion, and the doctors said he was clear to fight. If he doesn’t fight, it is because of himself and not because a doctor didn’t clear him.

Matt Mitrione came in and said he had swelling of the brain. Rashad said it sounds like a concussion. They asked Matt for some sort of written proof from the doctor, but he does not produce anything. His story frankly sounds conflicting. The coaches don’t know if he wants to fight, if he’s just making excuses, or what.

Now Kimbo, who has been wanting to fill in for someone the whole show, seems to have knee trouble. Regardless, Rampage wants to start getting Kimbo ready to fill in for Matt Mitrione. Now Kimbo is hesitant because if he fills in for Mitrione, he will have to fight James McSweeney in the quarter-finals.

Kimbo said, “I would fight him, don’t get me wrong, but I need time to prepare. He’s a kicker.” Uhh, yeah Kimbo, this is MMA, everyone is a potential “kicker.” So, Kimbo apparently doesn’t want to risk getting kicked in his knee that he claims was recently injured.

Justin Wren TUF 10 blog: Matt the Rat and Showtime

First off, I think this is the best episode yet. Now things are starting to heat up a bit and  the tension is definitely building and fights are getting more and more entertaining. I  also want to thank PROMMA.INFO for giving me this opportunity to write this TUF blog for them. I am excited for all the opportunities that have been coming to me from being a part of The Ultimate Fighter and I am just very fortunate to be in the place that I am.

The episode starts out with the recap of Roy vs. Kimbo if anyone watched The Aftermath on Spike.com they would  see that Dana is still not pleased with the performance that Roy put on. Roy did what he had to do to win, but I think the fans would have appreciated more of an effort to stop the fight with more devastating blows.

“The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights”- episode 4 recap

Despite “Kimbo’s” loss last week, and record ratings for the show, the powers behind the UFC machine are not ready to relinquesh top ratings and huge numbers associated by having “Kimbo Slice” as a part of the show this season.

That is why commercials and previews for tonight’s show included hints and peeks into the possibility of “Kimbo” working his way back into the competition by way of either sickness or injury to another fighter.

After a quick recap of the Roy “Big Country” Nelson vs. Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson fight, and some comments from the fighters, Nelson is shown making some remarks that rub “Rampage” the wrong way as he makes his way out of the cage.
