On this day in 2009 we witnessed the debut of Kimbo Slice after his run on The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Alongside Pure EVil MMAs (Gloves Off Podcast) James McSweeney, Roy Nelson, Brendan Schaub and coaches Rampage and Rashad Evans.
Season 10 still goes down as the most viewed season in Ultimate Fighter History with some of the most memorable moments of all time like the infamous angry door smashing of Rampage or the Intense yet comical back and forth between Rampage and Rashad.
With The Ultimate Fighter Season Finale being the stage where we most remember Jon Jones getting his only loss for the 12-6 elbows it was also known for the Debut of Kimbo not being what fans really expected but we have to look past that and pay respect to the hype and new fans Kimbo was able to bring over to MMA despite his run in the sport.
Kimbo paved the way for Youtube and was one of the original trending internet sensations and we must not forget he also opened the door for the BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal.
