Report: Kimbo Slice leaves MMA for Boxing

It looks like MMA won't have Kimbo Slice to kick around anymore.

Slice told ESPN.com on Thursday that he is leaving MMA to fight in boxing's heavyweight division.

"I'm gonna be a problem in the heavyweight division," he said. "I'm going to be coming in with a bad demeanor. I want to see what it's like to break some ribs, break a jaw with one punch."

In addition to fighting in the UFC, Slice was also part of Spike TV's "Ultimate Fighter 10", losing his only bout on the show.

Slice is expected to sign a promotional deal with Gary Shaw, according to ESPN.com.
