Rumors circulated in the past few days about Kimbo Slice fighting on the supposed April 17 UFC card. Not true.
UFC announced Monday that Kimbo Slice will fight Matt "Meathead" Mitrione at UFC 113 on May 8 in Montreal. It's among the undercard fights leading up to the much-anticipated Lyoto Machida-Mauricio "Shogun" Rua rematch for the light heavyweight title.
(By the way, if you've never been to Montreal, save up some bucks now and go for UFC 113. Great city.)
Kimbo won his UFC debut against Houston Alexander. Mitrione did the same, knocking out Marcus "Big Baby" Jones. Expect a massive slugfest here.
More on Kimbo later, but in the meantime, here's the rest of the UFC 113 fight card and some Kimbo Slice photos.
