Y! Sports exclusive: Kimbo gets TUF

By Kevin Iole, Yahoo! Sports 44 minutes ago

Yahoo! Sports

LAS VEGAS – Kimbo Slice, the controversial heavyweight who in 2008 headlined the most-viewed mixed martial arts card in history, will be one of 16 contestants on the forthcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s reality TV series.

Dana White, the UFC’s outspoken president, has repeatedly mocked Slice for his lack of fighting ability. Slice, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, became a cult figure by competing in street fights that were posted on YouTube. Slice’s “bouts” drew tens of millions of views and led him to turn professional.

He fought for the now defunct Elite XC, garnering massive media attention but getting mocked by White and others affiliated with the UFC for a lack of ability.

White has called him a “joke,” a “bum” and “not a real fighter,” among other less than kind descriptions. He said that Slice would “get murdered if he fought in the UFC” and suggested that his lightweight champion, 155-pound B.J. Penn, would “annihilate” the 230-pound Slice.

The UFC president has repeatedly insisted he would not allow Slice to compete in the UFC unless he won his way onto the show by competing on “The Ultimate Fighter.”

Slice has called White’s bluff and will appear on Season 10 of the highly rated Spike TV series, White has confirmed. Fighters live in the same house and train together, and then fight during the show in a bid to earn a UFC contract.

His appearance, along with that of former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans as coaches, should guarantee massive ratings.

“It should be interesting, given some of the things I’ve said about him,” White said.

Slice, who has a 3-1 professional record, appeared in the main event of the first MMA card shown on network television in the U.S. when he fought James Thompson on May 31, 2008, on CBS.

Slice won by third-round stoppage in a bout that attracted a record 6.5 million viewers and remains the most-viewed MMA bout in history.

But Slice hasn’t fought since Oct. 4, when he was knocked out by a jab from late replacement Seth Petruzelli, a light heavyweight, just 14 seconds into another fight broadcast on CBS. The plug was pulled on Elite XC, which reportedly lost millions of dollars, in the aftermath of the fight.

White promised “some major surprises” as he announced on a Thursday conference call that Jackson and Evans, each of whom is a former light heavyweight champion, would serve as coaches on Season 10.

He declined to say anything further but urged reporters on the call not to miss media day, which is Tuesday at the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas.

White worked hard to keep Slice’s appearance on the show a secret, hoping to have unveiled him Tuesday. Season 10, which is being called “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights,” was originally slated to feature a cast of eight heavyweights and eight middleweights, but the UFC quietly informed the middleweights who tried out that it was going with an all-heavyweight show.

And unlike in recent seasons, where the competitors had to win a fight to earn their way into the house, there will be no such arrangement this time. All 16 fighters – Spike and the UFC are keeping names of the others a closely guarded secret – will automatically move into the house.

Though White goes to great lengths to insist that nothing on the show is scripted, it’s virtually guaranteed that Slice won’t fight early in the competition. Having him around and alive in the competition is going to keep ratings elevated.

If Slice is able to advance to the live Dec. 5 finale, with a chance to earn a UFC contract with a win, ratings would likely be the largest in Spike history.

I'm very interested to see him up against some UFC competition. Though I don't know why since he couldn't stand up to scrub E-XC fighters.

I feel the same way.
For some reason I really want to see this.
Part of me wants to see him win it all and part of me wants to see him get embarrassed in the first fight.

i generally agree with Dana. Kimbo wont survive the UFC. the TUF show wont weed him out though. the TUF rosters are always pretty weak. Kimbo might win a TUF bout or two but, Kimbo started training 25 years too late.

Exactly. He will get his clock cleaned if he makes it to the real fighters.

This should be cool to see either way, but I'm hoping Kimbo wins and goes on to at least compete well in UFC. Guess we will see.

I'm very excited to see what Kimbo can do. There is no doubt that he is very good for the sport.

Kimbo is a scary looking dude but gotta go with Dana on this one, he was KTFO by a light heavyweight UFC dropout in a minute or two.

He took a dive in that last fight....


He'll get taken down and beaten until the candy comes out by a legit, trained fighter. These guys aren't street punks fighting prison style, with no kicks and no ground fighting for rent money.

Dana White is a fucking homo.

He bashed the hell out of Elite XC for promoting their entire show on Slice, then Dana White is purposely not having Slice fight early to keep the ratings up on his own show?

I guess its ok for him to bash the other league for using Slice as a ratings booster, but then it's ok for him to turn around and almost do the exact same thing.

Yeah, he is a real POS..

Will give him credit for UFC, but he needs to step away so it can grow..

no one knows what will happen. Dana might very well have him fight very early to prove his point if he truly thinks Kimbo is a punk.
