After the two fought Jensen worked to earn his way into the UFC by winning fights. Sims worked toward the UFC too. He just took a different path earning a spot as a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 5 which premiered on April 5th 2007.
Sims made a name for himself not because he walked through his opponents, but because of the numerous claims he made on the show.
Contestant Joe Lauzon recounted the copious claims, "...Mr. Indestructible. Let's start with the nickname. He claimed he had never been knocked out by a human being. That was false, and was actually proven false while on the show. I'm not sure if you can tell, but there is a peg board in the gym that had large wooden dowel pegs. You could climb up the wall by putting the pegs in holes that were higher and higher. During one of the Team Pulver practices, Marlon was using the pegboard and started talking to someone and looking over his shoulder. When his shoulder leaned back, the peg came out and he nailed himself in the face with the peg board, knocking him out. He had to go and get stitches."
In all fairness to Simms, Lauzon does give him props for his cooking ability and his eating of a spoonful of cinnamon...
Finally, Sims is remembered not for his submission loss against Matt Wiman, but his backyard victory over Noah Thomas. Of course that didn't turn out good for either man as Dana White kicked them both out of the house.
So on 4/1/2006 when Sims and Jensen met they were relative unknowns. But over the course of two years they've made names for themselves in their own way. And actually both of them were in the news this last weekend on the Strikeforce/Elite XC Shamrock vs. Le card. They were each KO'd in their respective fights. With the losses Jensen fell to 11-4 and Simms dropped to 3-3.
