Kimbo Slice is officially back in MMA, agreeing to a multi-fight deal with Bellator MMA. Slice appeared on Friday night’s Bellator 132 show on Spike TV.
“I’ve been trying to keep busy as much as possible,” Slice said. “Been boxing over the past couple of years. My current record (as a boxer) is 7-0. Bellator is up there in the tops and they’re giving me the opportunity to fight on primetime and Spike TV. You know you can’t resist Spike TV.
“You gotta think, I’m still hungry out there. I haven’t got my fill yet. Whoever steps up to the plate, they got to bring it. I’m comin’ to get it.”
Slice (4-2) was released from the UFC after a 2010 loss to Matt Mitrione. He competed on The Ultimate Fighter, falling to eventual champion Roy Nelson.
“Anyone who has been to a Kimbo Slice fight has felt a thick, electric, tension in the air,” Bellator president Scott Coker said. “The man has a proven knack for evoking excitement every time he steps inside a cage, and that fits perfectly with the kind of fights we aim to put together.”
