Frankie you know a lot of people say that you showed a lot of maturity a lot of growth in your fighting that you're out muscle in the first -- -- made some adjustments he came back he fish -- -- around how we feel you know first -- when you're getting slammed.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Com -- -- strong he's powerful but I felt I was better fighter and just matter of time before I was able to.
You know -- -- -- -- -- -- you know my game plan.
You know watching the fight he was really deep every time he had -- the double like -- -- -- right up but here but pretty much in Gillis had no choice but to pick you up.
Is that something that you that you shot to deep Timmy won't -- that his game plan yeah I think -- you know up against the cage.
-- buy a basket case and now press -- against cage lock on the need to but.
You know pick among -- for -- run.
Parent Chris -- sir what was Friday's game thing go and -- when you got for sparred during the term training camp.
Com just best -- fifty -- -- we had a criticism on our side you know.
And the -- To fit the size advantage which is you know only goes so far in strongly became operational in the first round they're there.

Got a little bit windows and retires from -- work against Armenian.
Frankie when you're out there you know and five point as -- -- -- -- -- many people watching.
What are your nerves like.
He honestly can be ten people -- five point 29 no matter to me you know it's always nervous too you know I was a nervous but excited you know -- have some anxiety -- -- when the fire event.
All right well we're talking -- -- -- mentioned size before and can -- Ali you know somebody who knows about size king.
Each you had Diego I'm sorry -- Kimbo Slice taken -- Houston Alexander kimbo won the fight it was it was.
Pretty non eventful fight in my opinion you know he snuck in -- -- rendering bush your pressure.
Again same thing you got to understand I think these guys know when you have that much muscle.
-- a -- -- pump into what you gonna tire out real fast I can understand to some degree.
Koontz you know conserving energy but I think we all can they agree on kimbo needs to come -- -- -- -- and ago.
That's what he's that's what he's there for us what is especially these got a -- if he comes out and this is an animal like he was on the YouTube clips you know he's going to allow better.
Hi what do you think -- -- you know you're you're somebody who works -- -- made it around a business for a long time BJ Penn is -- your guys.
And -- I -- about a ways he only.
Pretty only -- this company or so let's company -- -- -- -- there right now yes right so the plug that in a way tell that we thought -- -- vs Houston.
I mean I'm not gonna lie I'm I'm I'm one person really got impressed by Campbell.
You know I mean after watching Campbell in that you know is his YouTube videos somebody exe and now -- TUC.
I mean Kimmel had a huge take down Kimmel did really good on the ground I think as -- -- can look keeps working with that.
2008 you just might go a long way in the sport Gary Alexander you know we.
We talked about this fight.
After the fight and Houston Alexander was it was it was sort cool ring you you know someone like -- -- -- -- drain -- commercial I'm not really sure what he was doing.
I mean if I had to guess I'd be like you know he wanted to get into the third round I don't know what he was doing I've never seen he's not -- fight that way.
And I'm perplexed me what what do you think about that fight.
Well you know I I spoke to use and after the fight asked them was that your game plan I really don't understand it.
Because like you said it was out beginning -- did -- there to fight.
Is it was very -- uncharacteristic -- -- -- have a game plan you know auditing coming out and banging and secondly it just seemed like that you know.
He didn't wind gage Arnold -- -- trying to lure kimbo in -- or what the situation was but it really just was uncharacteristic they'll both fighters because Campbell.
He was very patient as well you know so.
Had a very disappointing showing for both of those guys I do agree I agree with -- -- that I think that.
Kimbo does have some promise and -- -- -- Houston but just a really different ending an outcome in this fight and I think any of us thought.
All right well let the viewers know that we were watching James Thompson vs a Kimbo Slice and as a lead in leading T fight in in -- year old I was just roll right now wasn't used to vs -- You know frank -- you know I know you can't -- much as you are you have -- employee of full disclosure but you know I just I wasn't impressed kimbo I really you know I I disagree -- Qaeda.
I was not a personal what Houston I just I'm just perplexed by the fight period.
You know I take a look back and now I felt the first challenge him -- -- -- guys really weren't engaged in but I do think -- improved.
-- yeah I agree I agree the kimbo did improve -- really get an idea what you're giving me you know let up and -- proven and and trying to better which is seems like he is making -- -- -- -- can -- -- let's talk to you about big country Roy Nelson here's a guy.
Who weighs what 265.
He's got a huge belly he's out of shape and you know somebody like you might look at -- laugh but he he probably -- -- fight.
You know the funny thing about we just said as -- the very first show the Ultimate Fighter I've -- in the Wendell.
You know you've got experience he's -- -- champ yet you -- -- you can just tell you know that he has this sort of confidence he still -- -- It's almost borderline cocky but there's a reason for that for him because he's a fighter you know and from what I hear backstage he's.
You know Gracie black -- you know.
He's good he's -- really really Good -- skilled.
The -- he you know he seemed to take people category for that for that crucifix -- -- he could just pound -- ahead.
Had these unanswered hits and and you know he really relies on that the referee to stop the fight because he's had a somebody in the head unanswered.
How do you defend against a guy -- ability that they couldn't get to Ludacris fix.
Mom you gotta try not to move and you got to try to move around them move yourself in on us the biggest thing I'm.
You get a guy like patterns can hold position on -- isn't you know and get on top in -- good position is going to be hard to get off you know he works a crucifix beautiful you know so.
The biggest thing there is just.
Don't worry about moving -- -- got to move yourself you know.
Frank -- a wrestler what what are place can you give anybody's gonna fight when -- next an about a way.
-- doesn't have a great sense of humor I mean he said things after the fight like.
I'm that officials suck meter for you have -- and -- if you lose to me -- to get cut from you have -- he's got a great since of humor and wreck Patti what what's your what's anybody's gonna face this guy.
Well they don't give that a fan of them what she proved to have you know power and his hands Lehman and actually have to understand them but if you don't.
He's a big -- guy as far as -- attacks I would try to stay with McCain to be -- his hands is very good if he didn't need to take.
Make sure doesn't -- his hands get a body lock on it is most likely going to be a -- you know -- Gary Alexander -- in Vegas so what do you think is next for Roy Nelson he is the Ultimate Fighter he won the contract.
When are we gonna see a fight next and who do you think the data it get away -- civil have up for him.
You know that's a really good question I'm really not sure I'm a little perplexed to be honest with -- because I think you would have to fight someone.
At a medium medium level there in the UFC.
Is not ready for you know and a big guy like Alec let's say a -- amounts.
I personally wouldn't even one CC and -- our -- skiing and I figured that was a bad matchup for him even though we did well on the fight.
I think he's a fight maybe one in reality show guys again or maybe a smaller smaller scale -- -- the kind of keep building this guy you know making him bigger those -- -- We talked about what's next for big because Roy Nelson who's next for -- slice.
-- hot -- some didn't.
-- Kutcher and also might be next what Kimbo Slice.
I think I think that right there you know like a part -- on that agreements yeah I had a rematch I think that right now I think everybody would -- to -- fight.
You know what's interesting to me I did before wrap -- up Kimbo Slice mentioned his managers.
At the press conference who he thanks and -- sponsors never mentioned American top team at all.
I'm not an and -- -- look where it didn't walk out with him at the way and so.
I'm wondering do you think there's any tension there between record Libor -- Kimbo Slice -- -- -- such a huge persona.
Maybe I don't know maybe the clash I don't know what -- I don't know what the story is I'm just guessing.
But when you have human -- -- barbecue at at you know we're -- -- it was we took the way it wasn't.
I really don't know I couldn't tell you but you know he's going when he -- for how long so maybe just that -- has been established yet.
Our -- to put up next standby.
