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

New, 17 comments


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?
