Kimbo Slice Set To Join Season 10 Of “The Ultimate Fighter”
Total Pro Sports – UFC President Dana White’s thoughts on Kimbo Slice are no secret. He has even gone so far as to say that 155-pound B.J. Penn would mop the floor with the 230-pound monster. He has called him a “bum”, “joke”, and “not a real fighter”, but now he is prepared to give him a chance to become one on season 10 of “The Ultimate Fighter”.
Reports indicate that White has given Slice a spot on the popular Spike TV reality show where 16 fighters battle it out for two six-figure UFC contracts. Although he was never willing to give Kimbo Slice a shot in his company, Dana White has decided to give the YouTube celebrity a chance to prove himself and make it the hard way. When asked about such a decision, White responded, “it should be interesting, given some of the things I’ve said about him.”
This is likely Kimbo’s one and only chance to ever become a legitimate MMA and UFC fighter, and after all that has been said about him, he will no doubt have the most to prove of any fighter on the show. It will be interesting to see how the other fighters react to his presence in both the house and the ring. After giving him this chance, you can bet Dana White will be watching his progress closely.
Taping for the show begins tomorrow and it will air in September on Spike TV. Season 9 of “The Ultimate Fighter”, which saw fighters from the USA and UK take on each other, will be hard to top, but with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans set to coach, and Kimbo Slice present, don’t expect anything less from season 10.
