UFC Announces Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione For UFC 113 In Montreal

New, 17 comments

From UFC.com:

Canada will get their first dose of the Kimbo Slice phenomenon on Saturday, May 8th, when the Ultimate Fighter alumnus looks to make it 2-0 in the Octagon on the UFC 113: Machida vs Shogun 2 card at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Slice (4-1), fresh off his three round unanimous decision victory over Houston Alexander at the TUF10 finale last December, will be in with a familiar foe on May 8th, as he takes on his Ultimate Fighter castmate, Matt Mitrione in a heavyweight bout made official today

If this announcement holds true, then Strikeforce can at least breathe a little sigh of relief, as a Slice fight on April 17th would have really hurt them ratings wise.  I think Mitrione could give Kimbo some problems in this fight.  What say you?
