    Kimbo Slice will be a cast

    member of the Ultimate Fighter 10: The Heavyweights next season. Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans will be the coaches. This should be very good.
    Kimbo pretty much sucks and is a street brawler but it will be fun to watch the developement on t.v. for free.

    Re: Kimbo Slice will be a cast

    So is this the first sign that the UFC is no longer the fastest growing sport? Seems like a grab for publicity. It might work though, I may just have to watch.

    I wouldn't want to fight him regardless. Imagine if he could develop some talent, he'd be pretty good....

    Re: Kimbo Slice will be a cast

    I would not that it's not growning. This is a development show where they try to develope names. If they can add an already known name and draw bigger crowds then it's just another smart business move by Dana White.
    There is also a rumour that former WWE wrestler Bobby Lashley will be participating on this show as well.

    One can only hope.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Kimbo Slice will be a cast

    In Dana White's recent interview with ESPN he said the only way that Kimbo Slice would ever fight for UFC is if he came through the Ultimate Fighter. Kudos to both guys for making this happen.

    Re: Kimbo Slice will be a cast

    Tennis participation went up 9.6% last year. I can't link it because it's in a magazine and I don't really like tennis so I'm not a homer about it either.

    Basically Tennis is cheap and you can play with two people.

    Dana White is a genius, but I lost a lot of respect for him in the Junie Browning deal.

    If you replace every "tennis" with "sex" this post would also be true.....Just sayin'.

    WOW! Girst time I have ever heard anyone accuse Dana of being a "genius".

    He is cut throat, abuses fighters, successful-but genius, really?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    You can make any stat say what you want it to say. Basically if 100 people were watching tennis in 2007 and then 110 people watching it in 2008 you can say they had the biggest grown sport but really only 10 people started watching it while football gained 1000 people but only increased by 1%.
