“Ultimate Fighter” Season 10 contestant and former YouTube sensation Kimbo Slice will be answering questions today on ESPN.com. Slice will talk about joining the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter” in hopes of making it into the UFC’s Octagon.
Regardless of how he does on this season’s show, ratings will definitely be up, which means UFC president Dana White will probably have a hard time not offering Slice a contract, even if he doesn’t win the show.
This season’s coaches will include two former UFC light heavyweight champions in Rashad Evans and the newly casted B.A. Baracus, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
Here’s an excerpt from ESPN.com regarding today’s chat session:
Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, MMA fighter Kimbo Slice stops by to chat about his spot on this season’s “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show. This year’s show is named “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights.”
Slice will be one of 16 fighters on the show, each trying to win a chance to fight in the UFC. The season premieres Sept. 16 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
Slice became well-known for Internet videos of his street fights. The former bouncer turned MMA fighter had four fights with now bankrupt Elite XC as a headliner. When Elite XC folded in 2008, Slice accepted an offer by UFC president Dana White to appear on The Ultimate Fighter.
