New, 12 comments

MMAFighting.com is reporting that Moosin, which made its debut in May behind a fight between Tim Sylvia and former World's Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski, will return Oct. 9 in Chicago.

The promotion is hoping for a double main event for the event, which would be headlined by former "Ultimate Fighter" contestant Kimbo Slice against Pudzianowski and Sylvia against 7-foot-2 Korean Hong-Man Choi.

Slice last fought at UFC 113, losing to Matt Mitrione by second-round TKO. He was subsequently cut from the promotion.

Known as the "Techno Goliath," Choi last fought at DREAM.11 in October 2009, losing by second-round submission to Ikuhisa Minowa. Choi (2-3) only has one win in the past three years, submitting former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco with punches at DREAM.9.

In Moosin's May debut in Worcester, Mass., Sylvia submitted Pudzianowski with strikes in the second round.

[UPDATE by Matt Bishop: 8:50 p.m. ET 7/13/10] As pointed out by our own Robert Downey Sr. in the comments section, the Pudzianowski/Slice fight is being rebuked by Slice's camp:
