Report: Bellator pursuing Kimbo Slice for return


Rumors abounded yesterday on Twitter that Kimbo Slice, 40, and Bellator were in negotiation.

Slice (real name Kevin Ferguson, real personality gentleman) has not fought in the cage since losing to Matt Mitrione in mid 2010. He has instead been boxing, where he beat seven opponents (real name tomato can) against no losses. However, Slice has not boxed since Jan of 2013.

Ariel Helwani reached out to Kimbo manager, porn king "Icey" Mike Imber about the rumors, and it's true!

"They had reached out to us," said Imber. "however, it was very informal and nothing has been decided.

"You know Kimbo is down to fight whenever. There's actually a few options out there, so whatever makes most sense I think he's gonna with."

Helwani further reports that the new management Viacom intends to install at Bellator is also interested.

No way. All of those muscles and he gasses out the first round. He was starting to improve on his ground game when he was with ATT, but I can't see him ever dramatically improving beyond where he ended.

According to the UG blog, Kimbo left MMA in mid-2010 to concentrate on boxing...but hasn't boxed since Jan. 2010. MY GOD this copy editing!And keep it classy with "tomato can" reference.

Was that translated?Also- it says he stopped doing MMA, going on to compete in boxing- but then states his last boxing match happened before his last MMA match
