Kimbo Slice Quits MMA For Boxing

We’re only two days away from boxing legend James Toney’s highly anticipated mixed martial arts debut at UFC 118. While “Lights Out” is looking to start off his new career on a good note, former street brawler turned MMA fighter Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson will attempt to slide into the spot Toney vacated in boxing.

“I feel like a baby all over again,” said the 36-year-old told “I’m thinking about this at night. I’m gonna be a problem in the heavyweight division. 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.”

Kimbo leaves behind a 4-2 professional MMA record, and although he claims the mixed martial arts door isn’t complete slammed shut, his lack of a ground ground will pretty much solidify his permanent exit.

“This is a career move,” he said. “I love fighting. I like to knock people the [expletive] out. I love engaging. Maybe some people think I’m crazy.”

Kimbo was cut from the UFC after suffering a 2ndRound TKO loss to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 this past May.
