Kimbo Slice, the “Web Brawler” who did a stint in the UFC a few years ago, might sign with Bellator, according to speculative rumors.
According to CagePotato, not entirely credible rumors are saying that Slice–born Kevin Ferguson–will sign with the promotion.
“Is this Bellator’s plan: Sign Kimbo. Debut him the night Bellator goes head-to-head with the UFC. Bury the UFC. Get sponsors to jump ship,” the website joking said in a tweet.
However, it look credible that Slice, 40, will sign with the promotion, and it could just be a hoax started via Twitter.
It’s worth noting that Slice’s last MMA fight was UFC 113 against Matt Mitrione. He lost via a TKO.
His last boxing match was in January 2013 against Shane Tilyard. He won that fight via KO.
A few months ago, he said he wanted to fight MMA fighter Butterbean.
“I would love to fight Kimbo Slice, a good friend of mine is training him. I would love to fight him, Kimbo came out and stood up with Tank Abbott and knocked him out, but he wouldn’t do that with me. It would be a heck of a fight, but I would knock out Kimbo Slice before the fight got too far though,” Butterbean responded at the time.
