“The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” season finale garnered an unofficial attendance of 1,400 for gate revenue of $504,350, according to UFC officials. The event took place on Saturday night at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas.
The main event featured the final bout of the reality series’ tenth season. The season’s favorite, Roy Nelson captured the title of The Ultimate Fighter by knocking out Brendan Schaub with a crushing right hand that left the Coloradan flat on his back.
Much of the finale was overshadowed by the Octagon debut of YouTube sensation-turned-mixed martial artist Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. His bout with Houston Alexander won’t every be mistaken as a textbook display by either, but Kimbo showed minor improvements in his game en route to winning a unanimous decision.
