Welcome to The Ultimate Fighter, Kimbo Slice

After appearing on national network television, on the covers of magazines, and on computer screens all over the world, Kimbo Slice could have gone anywhere for the next step in his fighting career and picked up a lucrative paycheck in the process.

Instead, he chose to enter a house for six weeks with 15 other heavyweight hopefuls as a member of The Ultimate Fighter 10 cast to fight his way to a UFC contract.

“There’s nothing like being an Ultimate Fighter,” Kimbo told UFC.com “This is the biggest opportunity compared to all the other fight venues out there.”

On paper, Kimbo, born Kevin Ferguson, comes to TUF with a resume similar to many past cast members - 3-1 as a pro with two KOs and one submission win due to strikes. But the 35-year old from Miami is no ordinary prospect. A former high school football star, he first burst into the world’s consciousness through the streetfighting videos on youtube.com that got everyone talking about the concussive punching brawler with the unforgettable moniker and look.

If there is a "N-bomb" on the show you can best believe it wont be from a white guys mouth, with Marcus Jones, Kimbo, Rashad and Rampage all on the show.

I hope they patch UFC Undisputed 2009 immediately to allow Kimbo beards.

 Which team for Kimbo on TUF? - POLL (2) [10] by H20 I think Kimbo would fit best with Rampage personality wise, but Rashad will probably bring in Greg Jackson, and you do not want to be across corners from him!
