In addition to cutting Paul Daley, UFC President Dana White announced tonight that they will likely cut Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson as well. The former street fighter was dominated by fellow The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 alum Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 tonight.
“That’s probably Kimbo’s last fight in the UFC,” said White. “We’re probably going to cut him.”
Although he showed promise in his inaugural UFC fight against Houston Alexander, Slice was taken apart on the feet by the larger Mitrione before falling prey to the former NFL player’s ground and pound assault. While the defeat was Slice’s first official loss in the UFC, he also suffered a lopsided defeat to Roy Nelson on The Ultimate Fighter, however those fights are not counted towards a fighter’s professional record since they are considered exhibitions.
