Did anyone else watch it? What did you think?

Couple things i saw.
I thought Kimbo looked good, his overall skills looked a lot better and alexander looked like he did not want to fight at all.
I also was disappointed with big baby. I was hoping he would come through and get a win but i can't say i was surprised with with the result. He showed that he was weak standing up and Mitrione has some heavy hands.
Big Country surprised me a lot i would never have guess that he would knock him out on his feet. He is just so fat.

[link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdKGhRYcYYo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdKGhRYcYYo[/link] kinda surprised alexander continued on after this. also, that was just a terrible effort on alexander's part. He was obviously afraid of kimbo, I've never seen a fighter try and circle around and away from another fighter. this was almost as bad as the fight nate quarry was in where his opponent refused to engage and was fired by dana white after the fight.

Roy Nelson is the most worthless MMA fighter ever. Schaub pretty much controlled the fight on foot until Nelson landed one lucky punch and whenever Nelson takes the fight to the ground he does nothing except lay on his opponent. If he's gonna take them down at least try for some submissions or some ground and pound. This guy doesn't deserve to be the "Ultimate Fighter."

He won all of his fights on the show. And KTFO'd Schaub...how does he not deserve the be the Ultimate Fighter.

Saying he is the most worthless MMA fighter ever is pretty wild too, especially when there are guys like Karo Parysian backing out of fights on the day of the weigh in multiple times. Or guys like Gabe Ruediger, who have the opportunity of a lifetime and don't even make weight for an Ultimate Fighter bout. Hell you could even argue that Rampage is the "most worthless MMA fighter ever" for backing out of what could've been the biggest fight of the year.

And to the OP: I thought Kimbo looked greatly improved from the show. He cut weight for the first time, which took a toll on his cardio. His ground game looked leaps and bounds ahead of what it was, albeit he was fighting Houston Alexander. The KimboPlex in the 2nd round was SICK.
And Big Baby needs to work on his stand up, fast. If he doesn't he could be gone with another one-sided loss.

How could anybody say they were impressed by Kimbo? That was one of the most boring, pathetic fights I have ever seen. Alexander circled Kimbo for virtually 90% of the fight, and Kimbo just stood there. Alexander was also very tense & very afraid, he was moving very tight and whenever he would throw something, he was going backwards so much for fear of getting hit that nothing he threw had any venom on it at all. With that in mind, he still had Kimbo hurt twice and for some reason, chose to just stand there and look at him rather than finish him. That was so pathetic & stupid that it makes me wonder if Alexander was given instructions from higher ups to throw the fight or something.

Bottom line is that Kimbo got hurt twice and struggled to get to his feet one of those times against a guy who was throwing the biggest weak ass leg kicks the world has ever seen and who didn't even want to fight. Kimbo would've been mauled in there last night against an opponent who was actually there to fight.

I think Kimbo just let Alexander circle him the entire fight because he didn't want to take any chances in his first "real" UFC fight. I thought Kimbo looked just okay. I was pretty surprised that he actually managed submit Alexander though.

Correct he did win all his fights on the show. His match against Kimbo was pathetic. He just laid on Kimbo 95% of the match, even Dana White criticized him after the match saying his daughter could've punched Kimbo that hard. In his second match against Justin Wren, Nelson got slapped around the first round and if Wren had any stamina whatsoever he would have easily won that fight. And last night against Brenden Schaub he was getting rocked most of the match but happened to get one lucky punch in as Schaub was coming in for a punch. As soon as Nelson gets into the ring with a top heavyweight he won't stand a chance.

Also when I say worthless, I mean for being as hyped up as he is, his match are the most boring matches I have ever watched. Can't stand the guy.
